    Hi Don, this is closely modeled after a much larger bronze vessel (34 x 58 cm) from the Han Dynasty excavated in 1963. It's in the National Museum of China and is shown as plate 62 in the 2011 volume of the same name. The cloud pattern on the hide is represented on the museum piece by gold and silver inlay and the swiveling saddle serves as the lid. Maybe a museum shop item, and if so probably pricey. Regards, Jim
