Qinq Dynasty, Bronze Dou, Ritual Vessel
SOLD, Thank You

In excellent condition. Our bronze Dou or pedestal form vessel was used on late Qing alters for various ritual purposes. In excellent condition, this vessel is in a some what archaic style, yet retains a pleasant symmetry and form. The elaborate relief decoration and detail on the body, pedestal and foot is a stylistic reprise of an earlier time. Dou frequently had covers so we are uncertain if our piece was crafted without a cover or if the original cover is missing. Note the guild or foundry markings on the rim. Please inquire with questions or requests for more images. Circa 1910. H: 10", D: 5.5".
