I have had this is my private collection for many years.  I love these ornate and dimensional vessels.  On both sides are the majestic phoenix.  On both ends are Zipaks or Kirtimukhas (Chepus).  These are guardian protectors known for their bravery.   The ends of their mouths are open for some reason.  This is not a defect but intentional.

This is 19th Century stylings and quiet awesome.  I am sure it is a silver / nickel composite with gold accents.

This vessel has been SOLD!!!  Thanks C.R. !!!!
