This is a characterful French early 19th Century hand-hammered copper portable water carrier with swing handle. It oozes country house style and will look at home in a kitchen as a decorative item or as a fireplace accessory. Age can be evidenced from the hand forged rivets. Originally the carrier would have had a tap or spout. The repair where it was removed is shown in the pictures. The surface shows a busy and useful life. Please see photos for the overall condition of this lovely piece as they form an important part of the description. This item will no longer hold water.
