Solid brass vessel with a screw-on lid. These ornate brass jars were often used to store items from Ghee to Milk and used for tea/Tiffin and a variety of substances. Somewhat over engineered as the cup fits within the lid and prevents spillage. Labelled to top as Saranthy. Known to have come back to the UK pre war but as to how far back suspect 1930's. Extremely heavy Price includes UK delivery but unsuitable for USA/Canada.
