Description: A large vessel, the sides are virtually perpendicular to the base. The stepped lid design is also among the more rare types. The predominant lid design among the Yunnan offering bronzes is the “wheel” pattern, with a few lids having the lotus design. This is also one of the few bronzes displaying clear riveting of a two-part vessel body.
