Seller: celibro (246) 100%, Location: Newmarket, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 262735571546 Large Roman bronze vessel.2nd/3rd century AD.Height 165 mm.Diameter at rim 145 mm.Maximum diameter 200 mm.Weight 646 gm.This really is an outstanding piece showing exceptional craftsmanship.It is made from a sheet of hammered bronze and has a pair of cast bronze lion head masks with drop loop handles and stands on four claw feet, again of cast bronze.These have been soldered to attached them to the main body.The rim is turned over to form a groove in which tightly sits a length of two strands of twisted bronze wire to form the decoration.It is very unusual for this type of vessel to survive intact, all that is usually left are the heavier cast bronze pieces.There is a minor dent adjacent to one of the handles and the other has been pushed in slightly.A part of the twisted bronze wire is missing from the rim.There appears to be a small ancient repair below and to the left of one of the handles which accounts for the darker colour in that area.There is no further damage or repairs.It has been lightly cleaned by washing with water on the outside, the interior still retains attached soil. I have included a photograph prior to it being washed.It has a wonderful patina as shown with lots of verdigris and would probably benefit from further cleaning to reveal more of the bronze colour. Feel free to ask any questions, you will get an honest reply, or if you need further photographs.Please refer to my feed back.Authenticity is naturally guaranteed but if you feel that anything is not as described then I offer a full refund within fourteen days of your receipt.Will combine postage for multiple purchases.Payment by PayPal or bank transfer within three days of end of auction, if there is likely to be a delay please let me know. Type: Vessel, Provenance: Ownership History Available, Material: Bronze., Colour: Bronze.
