Folk Art Black Background Silver Copper Vase > 50207-2
Weight: 3 pounds
Our price: $99.00
We offer you this long-neck copper and German Silver vase from the craftsmen of Santa Clara del Cobre Mexico. The drawings were made using the German Silver and black paint, featuring flying birds in foliage. This vase has two different materials on top of the copper. First is the black background and to enhance it, the German Silver. Before the silver is put on top of the copper surface, the vase is made from one sheet of copper and raised with the artist hammer. This is an ancient technique the coppersmiths use, where no sophisticated tools are used, just the furnace to heat the copper and a hammer. The hand-painting is the last one to be applied. Made by the skilled coppersmiths from Santa Clara del Cobre, Mexico. A unique gift for your loved ones or for yourself. Suitable for your coffe table or near your fireplace. As a flower vase looks awesome.
