ANTIQUE BRASS WATER OR WINE VESSEL/pitcher/jug/urn

LARGE VINTAGE 1800's BRASS VESSEL made in FRANCE

Offered for your viewing and consideration, an impressive and stately vintage accent piece originally used as a water or wine carrier in some European country. The brass decorative accessory is estimated to be from late 1800. Purchased thirty-four years ago, this large brass container is the matching pair that enhanced the décor of my master bedroom. ( one of the containers has been sold) The brass vessel is the same as when I purchased it with no attempt to cleaning or polishing. The age patina, minor dents and markings add to the longevity beauty and characteristics of this antique brass collectable decorative art vessel.
