  • If you dig old-timey, smoky chinas from the 1940s and 50s, this massive, WIDE LIP PAPER THIN 22” is for you!

  • And you hardly ever actually see this massive 22” outside of some google stock photo with drop n ship guess nonsense. 

  • Istanbul AGOP Traditional CHINA 22” outfitted with three old-timey rivets for a glorious Swish Sizzle effect. 

  • This may be the THINNEST one of these you will find. Only 1594 grams. 

  • Fully lathed golden Traditional lathing. Beautifully Hand Hammered out to the edge with gorgeous ball-peen style hammering on the bell! 

  • Massive 3.5” flanged lip that is easily bendable and ripe for striking. Rounded over Swish-style bell. 

  • At a Paperthin weight of 1594 grams, this Istanbul Agop is extremely responsive, thin, wonderfully low-pitched, very, very DARK, and has a smoky, complex wash.

  • Outfitted with 3 rivets that extend the wash like you’re celebrating VE Day in 1945. 

  • Perfect for accents or as an alternate ride. Great at lower volumes but when you kick that edge it roars - all nearly 2 feet of it.

  • Amazing condition. This is one of the nicest BIG China Swish Sizzles you’ll hear.
