AN OTTOMAN TINNED COPPER EWER, 19TH CENTURY.
This large ewer appears to have never been used and probably came from Turkey at the end of the 19th century. It is profusely engraved. As usual with these utilitarian items it has fairly liberal use of solder to hold the different elements together. A fine accent item, perhaps you have a niche for it.
16.3/4” high. Original condition. The pin through the hinge attaching the lid is a bent nail! The lid itself is a loose fit on this hinge but is in no danger of falling off, it’s just that the single rivet holding it on is loose.
