Meticulously hand carved Kashmiri personal warmer. Lightly patinated, This particular Pot has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring paisley snakes. The opening of the caged area has a pair of peacocks on either side. It is in very good condition. Measuring 8.5" tall, and 6" in diameter, and weighing one and a quarter pounds before packing, this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir brass work from this period. I'm told that coals would be loaded into the pot, and a cord would be attached to the loop, and it would be worn to help the wearer stay warm. This is estimated to be made in Kashmir 100 to 150 years ago.
