Antique CHINESE DRAGON VASE Bronze Elephant Hand Carved Vintage Signed Amazing
This isthe most amazingantiquebronze or brass Chinese vase featuring a dragon on front and back and elephant handles and feet.
Just gorgeous and expertly done. The detailing on this piece is amazing and very intricate. My pictures do not come close to showing the expert craftsmanship of the piece.
Looks to have been all hand carved/made as there are no mold lines and there is defintely signs of the tooling. Even the chop mark in bottom has been hand carved into the base.
Approx. measurements is 9 1/8" intall and 6" wide, handle to handle.
Excellent condition with age appropriate wear and light spotting to the bronze/brass ( not sure which). No chips, cracks or repairs. When looking at the side, at elephant handle, the vase is just a bit off center. Very minor but wanted to mention for accuracy.
Marked as shown with a Chinese Chop mark on bottom. Unfortunately I cannot red it and have found no others online to compare it to. Definitely old.
Reallyan amazing dragon vase.
Most of my pictures are taken with a magnifying lens giving me clear, close up photos. This tends to also magnify minor flaws on item which many times cannot be seen on actual item.
Due to this magnification (especially on small items and jewelry), photos may make items look larger than they actually are. Also, if you are viewing the photos on a wide screen monitor, there is a good chance the items look shorter and wider than they really are. For greater accuracy, please check dimensions given in the description.
It is also possibly that the colors/brightness shown on your monitor are different from those on actual item due to different settings.
For larger items where the quote shown is for priority mail, the charge may seem very high due to size or weight. If you click on the "see details" link to right of shipping price, you will also be given a quote for parcel post shipping which in many case, is less than half the price of priority. I have shipped thousands of items via parcel post and have had no problem other than it maybe taking several days longer to arrive.
Items usually ship next business day after payment is received. Occasionally, though due to the time payment was received, handling time, etc., it may take an extra day, especially if payment is made late Thursday. In this case, it will probably be Monday before your purchase is mailed. I appreciate your patience.
