EASTERN TURKEY hand forged bronze small healing bowl. Lower inner walls have some religious writing which makes it talismanic. It purifies water with writings in it. It has incredible patina with bronze strong body. Hammer marks can be seen on backside. It has a fine lipped edge. When you touch it, you do not want to take your hands off it. We think, it belonged to a Muslim sect because of shape and size of writings inside. Most of the tin survived and still protects it.
