Antique Chinese bronze bowl with handles in the form of lion heads with rings in their mouths, incised with designs of dragons, horizontal relief characters just below the rim read Da Ming Xuande Nian zhi which translates as "made during the Xuande era of the Ming Dynasty". But most likely this bronze is 19th century. The bowl sits on a bronze stand with lotus petal motif. Total size: 6 1/2" high x 7" wide including handles (alone, the bowl is 4 1/4" high and the stand is 2 1/2" high).
