A heavy bronze tripod cooking vessel with classic Shang Dynasty (during the Anyang Period, spanning from c. 1300-1046 B.C.) shape and engravings.

Acquired from a collector in Toronto, Canada.


I selected many of these vessels from a reference book of ancient bronzes (Chinese Bronzes by Paul Hamlyn, 1966).  I found a collection of bronze vessels whose craftsmen were meticulous in capturing the era and style.  All of these vessels were handmade in China in the mid-1900s. . . . almost museum quality.


For the Serious Collector.
