Vintage brass tiffin
Beautiful vintage brass tiffin.
This piece has a beautifully ornate handle and sweet pickle pot. Worn matte brass revealing some zinc patina. This particular tiffin assembly is a puzzle to work out....which simply adds to its charm !
A beautiful piece, with a unique profile, that will add interest to any shelf display, however is also functional with 3 good sized compartments+ pickle pot.
**Traditionally a tiffin is used to carry a hot meal, with rice, curry and flatbread in each compartment... much like a lunchbox, a tiffin is still widely used in India today.
All measurements are approximate. 29cm x 13cm
Vintage condition, with any imperfections a part of the tiffins history xx
