- Material: Brass
- Dimensions: 5.0 inches Tall, 4.5 inches Wide (at its widest point) and bottom dish is approx. 2.0 inches Deep.
- Condition: Vintage – Used. Good Vintage Condition. As with all old brass items there are surface scratches, spots and markings, acceptable due to age/use/wear. There is a chip on the bottom inside border which makes it difficult to correctly place the lid, but it can be done with patience. Also, looks like someone taped the lid to the bottom a long time ago and tape marks, (on two sides), are still showing. We believe this would need to be polished in order to remove those marks. Since some like the old patina, we didn’t attempt to polish it. We are not brass experts and make no guarantees if tape marks can be removed. Please review all pictures and make sure you love this item before purchasing, we can’t accept returns. Please remember these are ANTIQUE and VINTAGE items, they are NOT new. Every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections.
- Shipping is included, (continental US only), unless otherwise noted. AK, HI and International shoppers will see additional shipping fees based on your location.
Keang Nam Enterprise LTD was a brassware company located in Seoul, South Korea. We did not find much information on this company, however, they were listed in the International Commerce records of 1966 as: manufacturer, exporter of brassware for sale to importers and distributors 2/9/66. We believe they may have started in the 1940’s when brassware enjoyed its golden time, following the liberation of Korea. By the 1950’s brass was losing its popularity due to new materials being introduced into the market like plastic, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), fiberglass, melamine, aluminum and vinyl, which lead to a large number of brassware factories going bankrupt.
