Talking Weapon?? for translation please

A weapon if used for what it is NOT designed for....
Seriously though I picked this up for a song at a local junk shop and found when I got it home that it is signed.
Would one of our Arabic speaking members please tell me what it says.
Regards Stu

Hmmm, very similar to our local coffee pot or BAKRAJ, the top is different and the spout has a hinged cover. They are still in use for traditional ceremonies in the Arab/Druze/Bedouin sector.
BTW, Afrita or Afrit is a she-demon to my best knowledge, much alike the hebrew Lilith.

Hi
"Afrita" this is not an "evil spirit", just some one in between "Angels and Demons"
