Middle Eastern Carved Brass Tea Caddy Cannister

Elaborately decorated brass tea tin or canister. Carving appears to be of Egyptian origin, it has seven panels of Arabic Calligraphy. The top rim is encircled by seven carved animals. The lid has concentric circles of designs of diagonal bars, braids and diamonds with a crescent moon finial. The hinge is fairly primitive, but is in good working order. Measuring 7" to the top of the finial, and 4.25" in diameter, and weighing just under a pound, this is ready for your tea or incense collection.
