Description

exquisitely and skilfully worked from a lustrous and even white stone with a rounded twelve-lobed body resting on a splayed foot of corresponding form, the spout rendered on one side in the form of a ram's head, the beast sensitively depicted with alert eyes and a pair of long curved striated horns above the ears, the mouth-rim of the vessel bordered with three evenly spaced paired lugs to secure the gilt-bronze and cloisonné enamel handle, each side of the handle with a band meticulously detailed with foliate scrolls and accentuated with a cloisonné enamel fish and ruyi terminal, all surmounted by a central floret at the top, the cover of the vessel with sides of similarly lobed form and encircling a central finial with a short waisted stem and stepped globular lobed knop
