A smaller scale Moroccan shoeshine box intended for use as a personal valet for maintaining one's clothing and shoes. Various bottles for cleaning products as well as rose water and and other perfuming agents. It measures 12" long, by 11.5" tall, by 5" deep, and weighs about 8 pounds before packing. Although one would usually associate this style of shoeshine box with Turkey, the enameling is consistent in color and texture to Moroccan enamel, and I have seen similar full sized shoeshine boxes in use in Morocco in the past.

Turn of the 20th century Bedouin copper tray. This was used as a dining table. The woman of the house (or tent) would put a floor-cloth down, then bring the tray laden with salad greens, green onions, flat bread, and bowls and plates of food. The family would eat communally with their hands scooping up the food with bread or lettuce. The wear on the pattern is consistent with frequent scrubbing. Very little of the original tin plating remains as a result. It measures 26.5" X .5", and weighs 10lbs.

Intricately hand carved Kashmiri Brass Samovar. Lightly patinated, This particular samovar has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring maple leaves, with a serpent handle, and fancy ornamental openwork at the base. The lid had a smaller lid for access to the coal chamber tube which heats the water from within. This has been tested for leaks. I filled it to within 1 inch from the top and let it set for an hour, and there is no sign of leakage. It is in very good condition with the exception of a small dent on either side. Measuring 12" tall, and 10.5" from handle to spout, and weighing three pounds this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir metalwork from this period, This is estimated to be made in Kashmir about 100 years ago.
