Antique 17thc Qing Chinese Bronze Lobed Vase, Gourd Handles & Applied Spider

ANTIQUE 17thC QING CHINESE BRONZE LOBED VASE, GOURD HANDLES & APPLIED SPIDER


Description:


An extremely fine antique Chinese baluster shaped bronze vase, dating to the late 17th, or perhaps early 18th Century.

The vase is of lobed form, with gourd shaped twin handles, and a spider which has been carefully applied, appearing to scurry across the vase.


Spiders were called "ximu" (meaning "happy insects") in ancient China. Even in today's folk culture, spiders are believed to bring happiness in the morning and wealth in the evening.


The mid section of the vase, down to the base, is further embellished with incised decoration within lotus leaf shaped panels.


I have been unable to determine a makers mark, however this is not unusual.
