Bronze Utensil for Holding Oil

Post  Admin on Tue Feb 23, 2010 9:49 am


This small bronze utensil, with a protruding body and a narrow mouth, was used to keep oils. The handle was made by hammering, but the hilt was fabricated by being poured into a mold.

The body contains plant decorations that were nicked upon it. The utensil was attached onto the round body. The utensil as a whole is similar to the modern kettle.
Dimensions: Height 5.5 cm
