Kashmir Carved Copper Oil Lamp Candle Holder

This Kashmiri candle holder is meticulously hand carved. Heavily patinated, this particular candleholder has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring flowers and leaves, With a twelve lobed foliate base, a vining stem, a heavily detailed spouted bowl with a serpent handle. A white medium has been worked into the recesses for contrast. It is in excellent condition, Measuring 9" tall, and 4.5" across. Weighing slightly under a pound this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir copper work from this period. This is estimated to be made in Kashmir 100 to 150 years ago.
