The hauls of my latest charity shop trips have a very slight eastern influence. :P
This time I found a small box with a REALLY pretty and detailed design, very similar to one I have and posted on here three years ago which I suspect this one has very similar origins and likewise has a middle eastern origin and was possibly a souvenir piece. The other item also has the look of some kind of hookah, except it seems to be styled like some kind of coffee pot. Maybe it's Turkish?
It also happens to be made from a decent quality brass(I shone it up a lot with brass-o and it came up really well. The inside was also stuffed with some kind of icky tissue paper which I had to dampen and pick out with a tweezers-that part was yucky :(
No dates, names or any other distinguishing marks or stamps on both pieces, so there's no indication as to the makers, years or locations both are from.
Total cost: €6 ($7.07/£5.40)
