Bronze ritual vessel fanggu

Abstract

This solidly cast archaistic model of an ancient classical ritual vessel was cast for use as decoration in an upper class household or scholarly pavilion. The fashion of having visual manifestations of ancient objects was an important one in Manchu court circles where great effort was made to demonstrate an affinity to classical Han culture as the foreign Qing rulers were seriously consolidating their rule over China – a process that started with the overthrow of the ethnically Chinese Ming Dynasty in 1644. 15.25 inches high x 7.5 wide ; base 4.5 inches.
