Detail: I really liked this piece when I bought it from a Toronto art dealer in 2000. Unfortunately, he could not give me much information on the vessel. It has a lot of qualities found in Hu Dynasty urns . . . but I’m not really sure. The handles look Mideastern. I would say it is early-1900’s. It is well cast in perfect condition.
