This silver-plated copper ewer has a pear-shaped body resting on a pedestal, narrow ringed neck, a curved handle and spout, and a hinged, domed lid. The surface of the body is covered in a repeated silver was carnation pattern, the ground being frosted and the carnations raised. The carnations and their leaves follow one another in an ogival form. The design reminds one of 17th century Ottoman fabric patterns.Reference: Bodur, F., Türk Maden Sanatı, The Art of Turkish Metal Working, Türk Kültürüne Hizmet Vakfı Sanat Yayınları:2, İstanbul 1987, p. 112.
