A very fine and rare example of a Chinese zun similar to the well form of a Gu. The vase exhibits many characteristics of bronzes from the 17th century and earlier. This one retains a very early cinnabar lacquer repair. Exhibiting lovely malachite green encrustation.
The form and style are quintessentially Shang / Zhou.
The base carries the quintessential xxx banded clan mark on the base as is common with other important examples.
Provenance: Purchased in Europe between 1920-1950; Private Minnesota Collection
