Unusual Vintage Asian Carrying Vessel(393 views)
Description: This unusual vintage patinated brass covered carrying vessel is decorated with an intricate floral pattern. It features a hand forged handle & a hinged locking mechanism with an old padlock. My guess is 19th century Tibetan. The surface is stylized with several banded borders that surround the old vessel. Within these banded borders, a unique floral scrolling can be found. The unit is hand tooled, hand designed & made in sections. It features a matching applied stand. It was purchased from a person whose uncle inherited it from someone in the diplomatic corp during the early 20th century.
