The stand and bowl of this vessel were cast separately and permanently joined at the time of production. The lid is topped with a lingzhi fungus. The entire piece is covered in an old brownish patina and small areas of verdigris. The lid fits very well into the grooved rim of the bowl. The lingzhi is cast as part of the lid, and has some areas of orange-ish patina. The interior of the stand is dark gray with some verdigris and the bowl interior is also a grayish tone. There are some nicks and a small dent on the lid rim that is not visible from the outside. No markings noted. Generally very good condition.

Height: 7 3/4 in., Diameter: 3 3/8 in., Weight: 900 grams exactly, about 2 pounds.
