A very interesting and unusual little Chinese metalware pot.
Made from copper, brass and silver tone metal, the base is brass and the top is copper.
The lid has an intricately hand woven basket weave design with copper wire and silver coloured wire, it may be silver and has not been tested but it may be a different white metal.
The underside of the basket weave is covered by a thin layer of brass to protect it.
What it was made for is unknown maybe snuff, medicine etc.
Could be used as desired.
A very attractive pot indeed.
Approx 2" diameter / 1¼" height
