Bronze / Brass Bird Zun Cooker Vessel, China
Detail: A zun is an ancient vessel that contained wine. This has the Tsun styling of the Sung Dynasty (960-1279 AD). Lots of detail with snakes (in a wing formation) and other birds. Unidentifiable signature on bottom. Features are more pronounced than the owl Tsun Shang style of the 11th Century BC. From an antique dealer in NE Beijing. Age unknown.
