ANATOLIAN – EAST TURKEY MARDIN / MIDYAT tinned Copper bating bowl. A great survival of a bathing bowl for a dignitary or important person because of the fine hand forged workmanship on both sides. Pinwheel motif is drawn very attractively. It is the sign of long life, when it is on such a piece, it means good “Long healthy life” wishes for the user. In great condition with protected tin layer over the copper.
