This has come from a private vendor. The bronze parts have probably been polished in the last few years as this has lost its dark patina. The wooden cover seems to be original to the stand, but has been broken in several places with some parts missing. The jade handle seems to be completely original, with no chips, cracks or repairs. The main bowl cloisomme section has a bronze liner which is separate and lifts out. The enamel part has a few very tiny chips on the top edge but no dents or repairs. There is na impressed 4 character mark on the underside which is original. Bowl cover and handle all seem to be completely original and a good age. Probably 18th or 19th century.
