The image displayed is that of a bronze charger measuring approximately 9 inches in diameter. This charget is decoratively designed with a dragon above a tiger. Also, the charger is inscribed with several chinese inscriptions that ate uknown to me since I am not very well versed in the meaning of such symbols.
According to information received from a realiable sources, the inscription on the back of the charger is as follows:
His majesity Shao Hsin (emperior) presents this dragon/tiger plate to general Ma Chiao-court minister. It is written in old Chinese snd Asian graphic letters.
Note: The item is writtem in old Chinese graphics that is 1000 years old. If the item is not authentic, it is estimated circa late eighteen century.
As before stated, I welcome any and all information pertaining to this item.
