Vintage solid copper vase featuring a beutiful hand etched floral pattern.

The vase is 6.7'' tall (17 cm) and weighs oz ( gr).
The mouth and base have diameters of 3'' and 2.2'' (8 and 5.5 cm)

The metal is quite thick and the piece weighs 9.8 oz (290 gr).

The style of this piece belongs to the Erzincan tradition of coppercrafts, which is a historic town in eastern Anatolia that was renowned for its laborious metal etching folk arts. The vase has a tag at the bottom which reads "Gülistan, made in Turkey, 5...". The name "Gülistan" appears very frequently in copper objects from the 1970's. I think this atelier ceased production sometime in the 1980's.

Metal is tarnished and discolored. The darker brown color is enamel coating which has been heavily scratched and chipped to reveal the lighter brown shade underneath. The interior looks dark and shows some green patina. The vase needs a gentle cleaning and would benefit from polishing. It has no holes, cracks or tears, I tested it with water and there was no leakage.

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