Inlaid With Silver and Gold. Condition: When I originally got this piece it was Black and Filthy, I didn't want to buff it and make it shiny, I wanted to keep its Patina and Age, so I soaked it and lightly cleaned it with a little silver polish.The top I believe was once removable, has it has pin holes and slots, sometime in its history it was soldered, when that came loose it was covered in thick resin glue, which is how I got it, I removed the resin with much difficulty. Although I refer to this has a vase it is hollow so I believe it was a candle light, the top being removable for cleaning, It has two slots in the sides for carrying handles which I have seen the Monks use in China.
It has a few bruises and small dents which is consistent to its age. I think after leaving China it went to a number of countries before ending up a convict in Australia.
