Meticulously hand carved Kashmiri Tea Server. Heavily patinated, This particular teapot has some amazingly fine foliate detail featuring fish, possibly carp, with a serpent handle. The hinge has a break , but the lid sits nicely, and it would be easily repaired. Aside from this, it is in very good condition. Measuring 6.5" tall, and 10" from handle to spout, and weighing a little over two pounds before packing, this is far more solid and substantial than usual for Kashmir copper work from this period, This is estimated to be made in Kashmir 100 to 150 years ago.
