A beautiful cast brass Pin Dish depicting a MANDARIN with his Top Knot forming the handle. The 'definition' in the casting is really superb.....it is solid brass and quite heavy for its size....measures 4 1/4" in diameter excluding the handle. There is a REG number on underside so I think this may have been made either in British Hong Kong or Britain in the early 1900's.....we think the registration date is for 1906.... Definitely quite old with lovely patina.
