This gorgeous Chinese bronze urn dates to the early 20th century and inspires one with its archaic decoration that is so different from that of other cultures. It is heavy and lidded and features incised designs all over the body and lid. On the handles are stylized elephant masks whose large ears seem to flap in some ancient breeze. On the lid there is a figural finial that depicts an elephant with a carpet over its back.

The lid is marked one the underside with an incised, four-character mark whose meaning is unknown. The urn reaches a height of 20-and-one-fourth inches. Located at Booth T-360.
