An old copper Turkish bath house bowl beautifully embossed and hammered.

It measures 2 inches tall (5 cm) and 8'' wide (20 cm). Item weighs 5.3 oz (150 gr).

This is truly a rustic and primitive piece with with various shades of brown and yellow merging so naturally over several decades. At the very center there is a subtle pattern of a sun or star. The brass coating has mostly worn off and the brown color is hinting at the most used parts of the bowl. The metal is quite thin and the bowl is elegant.

There is overall tarnish and a lot of green patina on the bottom. Unique bowl as a bathroom decor and quite functional to put in various bath accessories.

The piece needs a nice cleaning and polishing to look shiny. The dents and scratches have mostly blended with the rich ornamentation. The inside surface shows a few darkened marks/stains on the embossed pattern. It has no cracks or tears and there is no leaking.

This piece was bought from a historic public bath in the central Anatolian town of Amasya. In spite of a very small population, this lovely pre-historic town has four major Ottoman/Seljuk bath houses which remain (unlike most of the ones in Istanbul) truly traditional.

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