I will be listing now six Chinese brass pieces from a local estate. These are some of
the finest brass pieces I've had the pleasure of owning and they are all marked in one
way or another but for one. They range from very old to the turn of the 1900's and their
condition is remarkable. If I am off with any of the information regarding these pieces
please feel free to contact me. I will not be combining shipping for these should a buyer
decide to buy more than one piece and I will begin the auctions at a very low price with
This piece is a finely detailed heavy brass bowl with an elaborate dragon and wave design.
This design repeats twice around the bowl. This bowl is in good condition but it does have
a very dark patina inside indicating quite a bit of use. It is marked on the base as shown
with what appears to be an old mark possible late 1800's. The metal has a nice patina, it
measures approx. 7 3/4" wide X 3 5/8" tall. You may find some green brass tarnish in the
many grooves around the design but it is minor.
Any package with a packaged measurement over 12" is considered large and extra postage
may be required to ship so please take note of the shipping costs...especially for the larger
items. I will ship either UPS or USPS depending on the best value for the buyer.
All international shipments over $100 will travel Express mail for security purposes. This
is in the best interest of the buyer and the seller.
