Brass Bowl with Dragons, China

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

When this was sent to me from an Estate sale outside Beijing, I really liked it and had it in my private collection for many years.    I am pretty sure it is brass and with the dragons’ clamped mouths on the rim, I would venture to say that it is Chinese. .  especially the place of acquisition.  But no markings.  Great patina.  Stand not included.

This special bowl has sold.  Thank you L.Z. !
