Item:253954402509Ancient Style Bronze Wine Vessel - CHINA - Possibly Shang Dynasty 1100 BC A really interesting piece, purchased years ago at auction. Very well cast, with a great patina, this vessel is possibly 3000 years old. Likely an older copy, as late as the Ming Dynasty (1358 to 1644). Cast with Taotie masks and standing on three slender legs. Another small mask cast on the handle. No paperwork or provenance, but a finely made piece and not a cheap copy. Varied patina throughout, with the exterior in varying shades or brown and green, with a verdigris color inside (see photos). Compare to some of the "shang dynasty vessels" being offered from China on Ebay. There is no comparison.
