Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



This is a stately brass and cloisonné container /  vase.  It is openware:  four brass open ports with dragons covering the ports.  Made in the Hebei Province, outside of Chengde, in the mid-1900s.


The cloisonné is well done. The paint is on the dull side, probably due to age.  All in all, a gorgeous piece.


Stand not included.


For the Serious Collector.
