This beautiful antique brass decorative dish is simply exquisite. Handmade from solid brass. The golden hues of the brass adorn the inside of the bowl, whilst the underside has an intriguing black finish with hammered pattern.

What actually is brass?
brass, alloy of copper and zinc, of historical and enduring importance because of its hardness and workability. The earliest brass, called calamine brass, dates to Neolithic times; it was probably made by reduction of mixtures of zinc ores and copper ores. For decorative use only and not food safe.
and why is Brass so expensive?
Brass is worth more money due to it being made up almost entirely of copper, which is worth more than zinc. With an untrained eye or no proper tools, identifying the difference between brass and bronze can be difficult.
