Antique Copper Hand Wrought Tea Pot Style Watering Can (Ikebana Vase)
Rare "tea pot" form old copper watering can - we can not find anything to compare to this rather special piece. This is a hand wrought peice with a hand hammered finish. Tall elegant handle with wide top opening that is easy to fill, tapered round body which rests on a round foot.
This can be used as a vase - a unique Ikebana vase….
The number "71" impressed on upper rim. Very nice shade of rich golden bronze copper.
Late 19th Century.
Condition is good for age with expected (and desired) signs of patina, age and use.
