SKU: A-3675 Category: Tag:
Age or period: Late Ming/Early Qing
Product Condition: There is a dent to one of the masked handles, although the handle is very thick and could be just a manufacture error. I don’t see how you could put a dent without breaking the handle. There are no breaks, cracks, or repairs. The patina is patchy from age and use. There is one spot on the waist where the vase rubbed on something and the bronze is visible. It has a dull gold color and is not either red or yellow.
