It has an obscured inscription which will hopefully be uncovered during conservation, and potentially this could create a link between this piece and other bronze vessels of the period. The jue vessel features a proto-character near the handle, which could be an invaluable tool to link this vessel with others in collections around the world. Both works are presented by Irene Noel-Baker in memory of Barbro Sonander.
Barbro Sonander, Peking circa 1953-1956; by descent to donor Irene Noel-Baker.
