18c Large Tavern Mug Or Tankard Primitive Dovertailed Copper 2-handle Jewish Cup For Sale
This is an unusually large 2-handled European hand-made copper laver used by religious Jewish people for the ritual of hand washing.
This piece dates to around c1850 and is all hand-made. It is in excellent condition with a few minor rim dents on the bottom as you can see in the pictures.Overall, it measures a whopping 7 3/4" ( 6 3/4" high at the cup part alone), another 1" to the tops of the handles).
It is 5 3/4" wide at the mouth of the cup part. It is not easy to understand just how unusually large this one is. Perhaps I should get a picture of it alongside a "typical" sized one. If you already have one of these, see how tall yours is!It has dovetail construction, but it is very hard to photograph so you might not see it. It is quite heavy too.
I have never seen one of this size, and the unusual little notches at the tops of the handles.
(If you would like the brand new Charlie Chaplin video, just remind me and I'll include it at no extra charge !)
NO cracks, NO breaks, NO missing pieces, NO holes, NO repairs, and !!!
