Antique Sumatran Cash Box, Brass, Minangkabau, Sumatra, Indonesia – 19th Century

Product Description

Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It is not as hard as bronze, but still strong compared to non-alloyed metals. Its malleability allows the craftsman to form pieces more easily, while its strength insures that the piece will last over time.
