    This seems to be a very old chinese bronze tomb vessel with owl face, I know little about it. It is made of cast bronze, 1.5kg in weith and 25cm high. The lid has a phoenix design and the body has an owl front and back. It is a great memento from my holiday and will add to my collection. From searching the web it appears to be from 1500BC to 220AD and a wine or water jar but any more info would be appreciated.

      is doesnt feel good a lei vessel with a chixiao without a western zhou pattern and a rather strange patina
