A small, 19th century, French copper grain measure with brass fittings. The ornamentation on this measure is quite interesting. Using a rounded tool a design has been hammered inside the piece. This then gives a textured finish to the exterior, displaying elements of the design but not showing the design in full. There are brass handles and brass fittings to the top and bottom which make the measure resemble a drum and the band to the top is further ornamented with club shapes. It is well made, from a very heavy gauge of copper, and it dates from c.1880. It is in excellent condition.
Dimensions: Height 19.2cm. Diameter 26cm. Width 33.5cm.
