Ca. late 1800s

This large rectangular bronze dish is cast with a bamboo basketwork design on the exterior and the base. In the center of the base is a raised rectangular cartouche with the maker's signature. It is supported by four short feet in the shape of bamboo stalks, and on the sides there are two vertical cylindrical handles. It retains its original even, brown petina overall. On the exterior and interior, there appears to be an old coating of black lacquer with considerable areas of verdigris showing through. Well-cast and in good condition.

Length: 18 ¼ in., Width: 10 ¾ in., Height: 4 ½ in.
