With an exceptional patina!
With a few enhancements, this authentic brass sieve — with an exceptional patina — has gone from working lab equipment to beautiful decorative bowl ready to hold a favorite plant, flowers, candles, holiday ornaments or perhaps something unexpected like hand towels or a collection of old love letters or shells.
The sieve is as-found with the original screen attached. I have added a permanent wood bottom to provide a solid base for the bowl and I am including an 8″ heavy duty plastic plant saucer that can be used or removed as needed.
Three brass feet (as shown in the photos) were made from deconstructed vintage candle holders.
The piece measures approximately 8.5″ diameter and 5″ high.
