Vintage handmade and hammered copper bowl with an ornate brass handle and tinned interior.

The top opening of the pot has a diameter of 4.5'' (11.5 cm). It measures 2.2'' tall and wide at the base (5.5 cm).

The metal is quite thick and the bowl weighs 3.2 oz (95 gr).

This nice bowl could serve as a holder for nuts, trinkets, candy, stationaries, condiments or candle votives. Historically, this particular style of copper bowls would be chained to public fountains to be used by passersby. Famous examples of such Ottoman works would be Qasim Pasha fountain in Jerusalem and Fountain of Ahmed III in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul.

The tinplating shows minimal wear. The exterior had been polished several months ago so the metal is only a little tarnished and darkened. The handle is very firmly riveted to the body by two pins. It leans towards one side, which I believe must have been be a manufacturing flaw. There are discolored areas and dark spots that need a cleaning and the piece would benefit from polishing. There are a few surface scratches. The bowl has no cracks, holes or tears and it did not leak when I tested it with water.

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