Thank you for the request here.
Yes, please send images at your convenience. Front, back, close-ups on details and maker mark, if any.

Please advise how to send photos. I think it is made of copper. I have deliberately not cleaned it up. I have no idea if it has a makers mark; sort of a 'Where's Waldo' adventure because of the detail. Moroccan? Middle Eastern? Moorish? What do people do with these things? This has essentially been garaged for a century.29 inches, corner to corner.Will send you three series of photos. White - spotted/stained images are on back side.TGD
