    I think that this is considered to be a cup or vessel. From first glance it appears black, but when light hits it. Ooh! what a beautiful green color appears. It has a mark underneath. Can someone help me identify what this actually is called and where it was probably made? Thank, CW.

      This represents a Zun ritual wine vessel, dating to about the 12th century B.C. For comparisons go here: (large URL, hope it works)
