A Chinese Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) lobed bronze vase. The vase has a wide flared lip and narrow body with a lobed, petal-like form. Encircling the vase is a thin, serpentine dragon. Unmarked, the vase likely dates from the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911) or early Republic period (1912-1949). The vessel is presented on a custom carved wooden stand.
