Object Description
Chinese classic Ku-shaped cloisonné beaker with a gilded brass or thin bronze base. A mask design decorates the center of the interior and exterior of the round beaker in repeat fashion in multicolored enamels on a green field (NOT the typical T'ao-t'ieh mask). The object is tall and narrow, with a very wide mouth at the top, giving it a general lily shape. The piece is thought to have been produced in the Forbidden City Palace Workshops of Ch'ien Lung, and is designed and decorated in "archaic" style.
