Vintage metal bowl featuring a hand etched and painted desert scene with mosques, trees, flowers and birds. Naive folk art piece is also ornate with etchings on its interior.

It measures 1.8'' tall (4.5 cm) and weighs 6 oz (110 gr).
Mouth and base have diameters of 4.3'' and 2'' (11 and 5 cm).

I tested the metal with a magnet and it did not pull. It doesn't look like copper, perhaps it is an alloy like alpaca or zamac. The interior shows considerable tarnish and is discolored with brown areas. There are minor surface scratches. On the exterior there is some paint loss. The piece needs a very gentle cleaning and interior would benefit from polishing. There are no cracks, tears or holes.

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