This decorative vessel is formed from a sheet of hammered silver, shaped to form an ostensibly traditional vase-like shape.

Hammer-raised wavy ribs spiral down around the body and the shallow top rim has an undulating edge. Whilst the exterior of the vessel slightly deflects the light from the hammermarks, the interior gleams brightly.
