Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
Old hammered copper Turkish bath house bowl featuring a beautifully embossed floral pattern. This is truly a rustic and primitive piece with various shades of gray and brown merging so naturally over the decades. At the center there is a relief of a pair of tulips. The rest of the bowl has embossed flowers and leaves which are less obvious because of the corrosion. The metal is quite substantial when compared to a typical bath house bowl.

It measures 2.2'' tall (5.5 cm) and 8'' wide at the top (20 cm).
It weighs 7.7 oz (220 gr).

Tin coating shows considerable wear and tarnish. Bowl displays a beautiful blend of colors with shades of gray and brown. The rim is dented and a little disfigured. It has a fissure, a tear of 1/3'' (1 cm). There are many surface scratches. Other than the problem mentioned above, it has no cracks, holes or tears and it does not leak. Bowl needs cleaning and would benefit from polishing.

This is yet another bowl that I had bought from a historic public bath in central Anatolia, in a town called Amasya (Amaseia of antiquity). In spite of a very small population, this lovely pre-historic town had been a favorite of the Ottomans and Seljuks, who had built four bath houses there.

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