Here is a stunning oriental gunpowder or water flask. Possibly Moroccan, it is made in copper or an amalgam of and is extensively decorated with twisted wire and beads. The metal has a rich copper colour with lots of oxidisation giving it a real patina of age. It has lovely blue and red beads though some of them are missing and pretty orange beads dangling from the bottom. I can't date it exactly but imagine Lawrence of Arabia dashing across the desert etc.

The body of the flask is 24cm (9 1/2") in diameter, is 37cm (14 1/2") from top to bottom, and weighs 950g.

The item is beautiful as it is. However I didn't expect to get ashes too inside an ashtray.

It's so disappointing when this happens. Thankfully it's rare.
