Soapbox of tinned copper - made in Turkey (sold out)

Currently Out of Stock. Please contact us for the next delivery date.
In the old days, boxes of copper-ware coated with tin were brought along to the hamam, containing beauty products and bathing ware. Really a kind of antique beauty case. In the hamam they were used as a soap box, and have tiny holes in the bottom to drain soap water.

Material: Copper with a layer of tin
Colour: Silver coloured 
Size: 11cm x 7.5cm x 7cm high

Tin is a metal and therefore it reacts with moisture like all metals, although it reacts less as for example silver or copper. So it will get darker after it got wet and this is normal for this product.

If you want to keep it light and shimmering, you have to dry immediately if it gets wet. You can clean it with water and a mild detergent, but you have to dry it directly after cleaning. Do not wash in a dishwasher.
