An original antique copper water carrier called 'Mezzina'. Commonly used in Florence and the surrounding countryside to carry drinking water from a well. This way of life continued into the 1960s in many rural parts. A charming piece that is great on its own or filled with flowers.
Found at an antiques market in Florence.
Condition: Good. Has several dents and signs of repair that show its age and use. The bottom is a little dented and it does not stand completely straight, adding to its authentic charm!
