Archaic bronze vessel, set on three splayed, tapering legs of triangular section, with curving, rounded channel-shaped spout, opposite which the flat lip extends outwards and rises to a point. The body, with rounded bowl, is decorated with a broad band of stylized dragons confronted to form a double-bodied taotie mask with protruding eyes. Two short columns, each surmounted by domes caps decorated with a whirling pattern, rise from each side of the rim at the junction with the spout. The loop handle springs from a bovine mask.
