Antique primitive hammered copper pitcher. These jugs were used by milkmen in Turkey a long time ago.

Ibrik milk jug features brass finial ornament on the lid. Old Turkish houseware has an elegant spout and sturdy handle.

Jug stands 13 1/2'' tall to the tip of the lid (34 cm) and has a 9 1/2'' diameter at the base (24 cm). Metal is thick and ibrik weighs 3 lbs (1.35 kg).

Jug shows considerable wear, tarnish and discoloration. There are many scuffs and darkened spots. The area around the neck is heavily indented and disfigured. The body and the spout also have smaller dents. There are spots with green verdigris around the lid, on the bottom and on the inside surface of the mouth. Jug needs cleaning and would benefit from polishing.

Handle is firmly secured. The lid too is firmly in place and works fine, it only moves slightly sideways as was originally intended to. The bottom looks charred and is covered with green verdigris. There are no holes, cracks or tears and pitcher does not leak. The bottom was not designed to be flat so the pitcher nicely rocks like a rocking chair.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can gladly send you photos from different angles if you like.
