Antique Brass Dish
//GINGERFINCH FINDS// These stunning brass dishes were handmade in Gilgit-Baltistan, the border areas of Pakistan, India and China, circa 1920s.
Made from brass with an unusually high zinc content, the dishes are a softer gold colour than regular brass, are more resistant to discolouration and really hold their luminescence. And they are WEIGHTY - they are not the cheap brass imitations you find today.
Each antique brass dish has its own unique, hand-carved design. To purchase the one you love, select the corresponding number in the drop-down menu. You'll see the dimensions and weight of your dish listed there. The dishes are truly one-of-a-kind. Once you purchase yours it will be unavailable to other customers.
Things to Know
Care: you may see fingerprints or slight patina on the brass over time. Clean with Brasso or lemon juice to increase the shine

The Story Behind It
We uncovered these incredible bowls while traveling through Gilgit-Baltistan - known as the Northern Areas - in Pakistan. We saw tons of brass objects on our journey but when we stumbled across a small stack of gleaming bowls in a tiny antique shop, we knew we had to bring them home with us.
They are an exceptional example of quality and craftsmanship, uncovered in one of the most unknown and inaccessible areas of the world. They are really special and we hope you love them as much as we do.
