Beautiful vintage copper wall hanging plate, intensely etched with a geometric and floral pattern. The plate has a metal hanger firmly soldered to the back.

It has a diameter of 9.4'' (24 cm) and weighs 7.7 oz (220 gr).

The plate is fully covered with little suns (or sunflowers) and has a fish skin like texture. At the very center is a single tulip, the most popular motif of Ottoman-Turkish folk arts. After all, we have an era named after this flower in history that stands for self-indulgance! History school books say that the tulips pouring in with the European tulipmania cost Ottomans the empire.

This is another unique object originating from the eastern Anatolian town of Erzincan which was well known for its copper crafts and laborious hand etchings. The metal displays some tarnish. The fish skin pattern would have a silvery color at the time of making, it looks dust soiled and darker now. Black color is a result of enamel coating and there are a few surface scratches on it (some more on the back side, which also looks a little discolored). There are no tears, holes or cracks. The dish needs a gentle cleaning and would benefit from polishing.

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