Current customer rating: (3) based on 61 votes
Height approx 4.5" and also weighs about 1lb or 450gms.
Good quality Islamic lidded Container which might have been for tobacco, sugar or spices. I believe it is made of tinned-copper and has numerous crescent moons and foliage design all over. It is definitely Middle-Eastern, possible from Turkey during the Ottoman Empire around the middle of the 19th Century. Good condition with just the normal wear for this sort of metal-ware, rubbing mostly but nicely hand-crafted technique and no sign of any damage....the pictures should give all the information you need.
