I am not even sure this is Asian but the details of the metalwork seem to be so no harm in asking.
It's a puzzle because huge work and skill has gone into crafting a very sturdy coffee set with the most primitive tools - makes me think it might have come from a place that was cut off from trade for a while? Someone may have some ideas. One thing that could place it is that it is constructed from two parts of beaten metal with a soldered "seam" at the belly.
The knobs are soldered on and it is non-ferrous hard white metal that rings like a bell when struck and polishes up beautifully.
This is the sugar bowl that shows all the details. Any ideas?
