Seller: plinycho (4,004) 100%, Location: Eugene, Oregon, Ships to: US, Item: 392719004798 Hi up for sale here is a most unusual box, solid hammered copper and very obviously handmade. I have been in the antique business a long time but have never come across one quite like it. It is old, and I think very old....crude handmade hinge....I just don't know much about it unfortunately and would welcome any information you can provide. I think it is from the better part of the history of the swastika, not the bad part. My primary reason for feeling this way is the very dark patina, the kind you usually see on really old bronze and copper, and its obvious crudeness. I suspect it is Hindu or Bhuddist, perhaps for a bible, perhaps to burn incense although they are not normally so large and are always vented. This box is oversized compared to the box. The top measures 3 3/8" across by 2 5/16" acoss. The box stands 1 1/8". Minus oversized lid, the box itself is 3" x 2". The box is one piece and there are two crude hinges soldered to it with a copper wire acting as hinge pin. There is some splitting to the rolled hinges as is naturally occurring process as it is opened and closed thousands of times over the years. A wonderful little box that would go great with your Asian antique collection or your hammered metal collection. Weight of this obeject is 135.2 grams or 4.82 oz. If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Thanks for looking! Modified Item: No, Featured Refinements: Hammered Copper Metalware, Object Type: BOX, Handmade: Yes
