This is an antique gun powder reservoir - it is large and heavy, measuring 36" tall x 18" wide x 5" deep and weighing nearly 30 pounds. It is said to be of 19th century Ottoman origin and belonged to the collection of Sharif Hassan Bin Zahin (sp?) of Mecca. Supposedly the item was used as "decor in the Sharif's wife's bedroom but had to be removed as it was not feminine enough - even with the purple cording wound around the top and handles". It is covered and decorated of beautiful hand scrolled metal (a couple have been repaired by a professional blacksmith) on what appears to be a brass or copper base. Item was purchased in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia while living and working there and in Pakistan for nearly seven years beginning in 1980.
