This is an antique cover or lid from a Chinese baluster jar. It is called General's Hat due to the shape and detail of the lid. It is hand carved Zitian wood with peony scroll motif. This lid is from the Qing Dynasty. This lid is very lovely and would be asset to anyone with a very fine and large jar. There is a very nice dark patina.

There are also several smaller fresh chips to inner lip of rim. These imperfections are captured in the photo images.
