    No idea what this is but I think your photo is upside down, it should be read this way
    Last two character shoulb be 和齐 though, so not a name of studio or workshop

    This did not help me. Maybe someone else will understand it.

    Google images says 'Ancient Northern Qi'. I would take that with a bucket full of salt though. Nice lump of bronze.

    Imo likely a person's name, I'm 80% sure last two is 和齐 he2 qi2, sounds like a person'sname to me but cant figure out the first one. Assuming it would be the last name of the person, still no known last names close to it. No expert on those signs though

    This site is where I based my reading on. Has thounds of modern Chinese and ancient Chinese convertion. No need to read the first one or two paragraphs, just scroll down

    It may not be 100% match though, lots of variations
