Small Hand Painted Hammered Copper Vase with Gold Leaf

Jose and Olimpia Barba

This exquisite hammered copper vase is hand painted and overlaid with 22k gold leaf. Formed through carefully coordinated hammering of a single sheet of copper, this vase receives its highly polished finish from a unique lacquering process. The bright and intricate flowered design is typical of the state of Michoacan, Mexico where this extraordinary piece is produced.

This decorative vase was created in the town of Santa Clara del Cobre by Jose and Olimpia Barba and measures 4" in height and approximately 2 1/2" in diameter at its widest point.
