Description

well modelled after archaic bronze dou prototypes, the deep rounded body subtly bordered with raised fillets and rising to a short constricted neck and lipped rim, supported on a tall splayed foot bordered with a groove along its edge, the shoulder flanked by a pair of small loop handles picked out with short scrolls, the bowl with a frieze of stylised wan symbols of angular scrolls above a band of pendent lappets enclosing stylised taotie masks, the bands divided by a thin border of diagonal striations, all above petal lappets and scrollwork painted to the shapely foot, the countersunk base with a six-character seal mark, the domed cover centred with a bud finial decorated with a floret and four petals, surrounded by stylised angular scrollwork and taotie masks echoing the designs of the stembowl
