A heavy molded bronze Chinese urn lid or cover with six sides with a dragon rondel on each of the facets. The dragons have four claws. There is a round top finial with four hard to read Chinese characters. The metal has taken on a deep brown patina.

MEASUREMENTS

7 ¼” (18.4 cm) diameter x 3 7/8” (9.8 cm) high. Weighs 1 lb 11.7 oz (785 g)

CONDITION

There are no breaks, dents, or cracks. There are a few green and white oxidization spots on the outside and green areas underneath. There is wear on the edges of the finial, as well as to the characters on the finial. The patina has rubbed off a couple of spots on the bottom of the rim and you can see bare bronze underneath. It is a rich reddish-golden color (not brassy).

A large, heavy bronze lid that has dragons aplenty. The lid would be a very impressive top to a large vase or ginger jar. Lids are hard to find!
