Chinese Archaic Bronze Loop Vase, Qing Dynasty

Cold painted bronze Chinese loop vase, with cast loops on all sides.  This is a really unusual piece, decorated on every side with what appear to be hieroglyphics or tribal symbols.  Believed to date from the 19th Century, but very difficult to date accurately - almost certainly from the Qing Dynasty, which dates from 1644 through to 1911. A beautiful (and certainly a statement) piece.

Measures: 32cm tall x 18cm square
