This carved Egyptian brass pot has a great deal of detail and texture within it's traditional design. There is a continuous chain of Mythological figures depicted encircling the belly of the pot with a granulated texture throughout. Also, there is a chain or endless knot design encircling above and below the belly of the pot. There are birds encircling the top of the vase. Lovingly hand carved, the fabrication of this type of metalwork is a dying art, as the younger generations adopt new technologies. It measures 8" high 4" across, and weighs 9 ounces
