The distinctive form of this bronze vessel is ingeniously designed with a flaring trapezoid rim, four rhombus corners gradually tapered into a swelling round paunch above a circular base, with two stylized water dragons pouring out wave curves that served as side handles, completed with plantain leaves on four side, elaborately decorated with taotie masks, bearing the I-Ching Hexagrams "Li" and "Kan" (Fire and Water) amid the interlocking hooks motif, which repeats in a flat band around the paunch. Considering that the flowing contours exemplifies Ming transition in its preference, the intricate ornamentation is likely a revival of the archaic Chinese design. Along with the smooth, dark patina mottled with traces of malachite on this bronze, we attributed the vessel was made in the early Qing Period.
