1443 Arabic Middle Eastern Tall Teapot Hand Hammered Inlaid Brass Copper Silver
This is a magnificent highly detailed Middle Eastern tri-metal inlaid tall teapot with base. This is as fine an example of this type of inlay as I have ever seen. In addition, to have the base, which would have been filled with coals to keep the tea warm, is very unusual. The teapot is brass with copper and silver inlay. I did not test the silver elements so I do not know if they are silver (sterling or coin) or some other metal. Element there is a 1 crack at the base of the spout (photo) this should be a. Minor repair for a skilled metal worker. Otherwise the condition is excellent throughout will only very minor imperfections, such as small scratches and dents.
