Detail:  This vessel  – with a guardian foo dog on top – is a quality piece of art.  I acquired it from an Asian art dealer in Los Angeles.  It was cast in Shanxi Province in a foundry near the famous Houma Foundry.  Age unknown but the dealer said he acquired it in the late 1940’s.  In museum quality condition.
