2 pieces of 14th-15th Century Hand Engraved Bronze Metalware comprised of an octagon shaped Bowl and Tea tray. Each piece has a dark rich patina. The Bowl is hallmarked on the underside (see photographs), and has two zoomorphic lion head handles that appear to have been crudely added later | While bronze, the alloy seems to have a thinner ratio of copper, tin and added phosphorus, which varied widely in China during this time. Approx. Measurements: (Bowl) 6″ W x 3″ H; (tea tray) 8″ W X 1″ H.
