This coffee pot came from an antique store near Sakhara in Egypt in 1984 or 1985. I found it at a small shop there. It is 9 inches tall and about 5 inches wide at the base. Part of it appears to be copper -- the spout and the top. The body is not so recognizable to me, but it has an attractive etched pattern. There is also a signature of sorts on the bottom with two crossed swords and a fair amount of writing in Arabic I assume. It could probably clean up well with metal cleaner, but I am always wary of disturbing natural patinas that come with age. I found one somewhat similar on a site I frequent. https://www.1stdibs.com/furniture/asian-art-furniture/metalwork/19th-century-middle-eastern-dallah-arabic-coffee-pot/id-f_20499872/?utm_content=condensed&gclid=Cj0KCQjwub-HBhCyARIsAPctr7ymjW-AcbTSXQj6loUf1E56QQaJYK2odmpdq5gCdN5pgttbxVRnS28aAoy-EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Are you OK with my reaching out to a friend who reads Arabic for a translation? It may take a little longer than 48 hours for this appraisal if I do.
Thanks to confirm,
