This rare Yuan dynasty vessel is decorated in dragons both to the front, back and as the design of the handles themselves.
It measures approximately 6 15/16" tall by 5 9/16" wide by 2 9/16" deep (176mm x 142mm x 65mm).
The vessel is made in two sections with handmade handles and mouth. The designs created from handmade molds into which the clay was pressed.
It is intact with no repairs or damage. The glaze shows pooling, running, some firing imperfections that are lovely consistent with wares of the period, the firing and this type of glaze.

Unfortunately, many items represented as authentic Antiquities are not genuinely ancient objects at all. Instead they are later reproductions, mostly of very recent manufacture, though a few reproductions of ancient objects are much older. Regardless of age if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely ancient then it becomes a 'fake' antiquity.
Likewise, if a later reproduction is represented as genuinely antique then it becomes a 'fake' antique.
