"China, XIXth Century Or Earlier, Bronze Vase Shaped Bianhu Gourd."
China, 19th century or earlier, superb and unusual old bronze vase in the form of an archaic Bianhu gourd. The shoulder is modeled of two feline heads. On one of the flat faces, a dragon decoration rising from the clouds and chasing the sacred pearl and on the other a stylized lotus flower divided into four parts decorated in reserve of a dragon, a phoenix, a turtle and of a Buddhist lion. The center is occupied by the sacred pearl. This type of vase inspired by archaic bronze models seems to have experienced a certain development during the reign of Emperor Qianlong who had it made in all types of materials. Very fine workmanship and quality of the cast iron. The same goes for the patina which brings a delicate touch to the decor. Good condition except some light normal wear and no incidence.
