Seller: Top-Rated Seller stich71303 (433) 99.2%, Location: Alexandria, Louisiana, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 192697230554 Offered for your consideration is a large antique metal reticulate container with lid. This item is one of a number of pieces being offered from a private collection. The date this was made and location are not known. The metal may be tin, brass, or some other alloy. The craftsmanship is superb and highly detailed. The top comes off. This has an urn shape with a lid. I think this was designed to hold a candle or oil. If you place a candle inside it produces a lovely design. It reminds me of a Moroccan Lantern but I think this was designed to sit on a table or ledge. 15" tall base measures about 4 1/2" across about 7 1/2" across at its widest point. Metal work as a whole is in reasonably good condition for age. Note that there at least five areas where this object is damaged. I have tried to capture this in my photos. However, these small areas of damage do not detract from the piece as a whole. There is a small crack at the bottom. No identifiable marks of the maker. The figures depicted in filigree look to me to be Hindu Gods. But they could reflect another culture. Please inspect the photos carefully and contact me if you have any questions. Prices for shipping is for US delivery only. International rates can only be determined after the destination is provided. On Sep-11-18 at 19:35:06 PDT, seller added the following information: I am so intrigued by this beautiful object. Tonight I decided to place a lit candle inside. When I turned out the lights I could see how beautiful this is. I am now convinced this was produced as a lamp to use with oil. I just wanted to share this with you. Age: Unknown, Material: Metal, Region of Origin: Unknown
