A Chinese bronze vase, and a bronze ear cup in the Warring States/Han style. The vase I think is Ming, and the cup is old but I don't know how to date it precisely. The vase has simple ring decorations at the mouth and the foot, but it is of elegant and tasteful form with a wonderful patina. The height of vase is 15.2cm, and the length of the cup is 9.1cm. They are in good condition, with no dents. I see lead around the base sheet of the vase, but I am not sure whether this is just a sign of original manufacture or a sign of later reclosing.
