    i picked this up yesterday at a thrift store and i believe it's very old, but i am not that familiar w/ Chinese / Japanese bronzes, so i can't say for sure, but....

      The figures in the brass are wayang kulit shadow puppets from Indonesia. See:

      Put wayang kulit brass vase into your search engine and check images. There a lot to see. In any case, you have a fine piece.. Good luck!

      i checked them out and they all seem to be engraved whereas this is a cast piece. I agree the dragons look like Wayang dragon profiles, but this one is also a lot older than those, but maybe.

      Aging metal objects is very difficult.
