Antique Qajar Copper & Silver 17-1800's Persian Ewer Pitcher Museum Worthy:
The Following items come from a large estate sale of a late, affluent, world traveler from a historic section of West Hartford CT. Many of the antiques, oddities, and collectibles were acquired during a lifetime of global travel and antiquing. Items will be described to the best of our ability. For more treasures from this collection please click here! Beautiful Solid Silver inlayed Copper Ewer (aka pitcher aka water container). Circa late 18th-19th century piece.
Origin region is Middle East Qajar Persian, Islamic
This is an original work of art, not a cheesy reproduction. Solid Copper base, hand formed (you can see all the little hammer strikes when looking closely), and engraved with an array of intricate artwork typical of Qajar quality.
Primary art features lions or leopards accompanied by a lot of floral caligraphy.
I think its museum worthy due to the intricate art and craftsmanship deflecting an important cultural time in human history.Ewer 15¼" height, 10" width, ~4¼" bulb base diameter
weight ~ 3½ lbs.Condition: Some patina but the copper is still very shiny and reflective (it was difficult to photograph, sorry for some overexposure). Below and to the left of the spout has a dent in the main area. Some patina wear on the lid neck and base. The lower connection of the arm is disconnected from the body but it does not alter function. There may be some solder near the spout and above the dent. I cant tell if it was done during creation or a repair attempt later. Some scuffs and dings as can be expected for items over 100y/o.Item will be INSURED.
