Monumental in size, exquisite in craftsmanship, this copper/brass bronze alloy is hallmarked with the Imperial Russian mark on the bottom, as pictured. Origin is likely Moscow with the Russian inscriptions and hallmarks. The pot is completely hand rolled and hand hammered copper brass bronze alloy, joined with the finest Russian dovetail construction. We have not polished this lovely footed pot which features 3 sturdy modified ball feet, leaving that to the purchaser's preference. It has a lovely luster with a copper color shining through a light gilt brass exterior. Moumental in size, very fine in condition, you will love this lovely antique Imperial Russian copper brass to bronze standing pot. The vessel measures 13" in diameter and 10" high.
