Antique hanging brass lota
Beautiful antique Indian hanging lota. Aged brass worn to a zinc/brass patina, with ornate handle and beautiful heavy hanging chain and hook.
These pieces have the added charm of the former owners names dot-engraved along the side.
Approx 14cm across belly of vessel, 11cm high...chain length varies.
A lota is traditionally used in Indian puja (blessing) rituals to store the sacred water.
In our modern lives, this makes a lovely decorative piece, or to hang flowers or plants.
