Antique Turkish Ottoman tinned copper charger: A beautiful, large, hand-hammered, heavy copper food serving platter with an engraved tughra mark on the rim, and an impressed coppersmith’s symbol or mark, on the base. 19th, possibly 18th century. Once entirely tinned, only some of the original tin overlay remains inside the bowl. Much of it has worn off over time from use, giving rise to a beautifully dappled copper and tin patina. The tinning underneath is almost entirely intact. This piece is visually very pleasing.
This is an excellent, honest piece with antique make-do repairs that includes mended splits in the rim and re-tinning that has extended the useful life of the piece. There are no recent repairs.
Size: Diameter is 15” and 2” is depth.
