    Dear friends.
    I would like to have your help identifying this small chinese bronze tripod vessel.
    I think it is modern because of the "Taotie" but I need the help of someone more experienced than I am. the vessel mesaures 11 cm tall and 9 cm wight.
    Thanks again for all the help you can give me.

    Chances of this being old are slim to none. Modern.

    Thank you. Do you have any idea of the period. I think it is from the mid-twentieth century.

    These are hugely reproduced, and widely available at museum gift shops and tourist shops. You sometimes find them in custom cloth boxes. We didn't see them much in the US until the 70's and later when tourists started bringing them back, but if your country had tourism to China back in mid-20th century certainly possible.

    yes, there were many tourists and businessmen from Sweden in those years. I'm curious about the mushroom-shaped handles. I have not found any similar object, both among the ancients and in reproductions, that looked like this in my online searches.
