Very rare Han Dynasty four bodied Ding. The four basins was cast all as a single piece using the the lost “wax casting method” which is a testament to their skill and technique. Encrusted with heavy azurite and malachite verdigris- aside from a couple of small holes is intact, there is no breakage. The entire piece has a diagonal Width: 30cm/11.8in. Individual D: 12cm and H: 13cm/5.1in. See last enlargement (sorry about the quality of the image)for reference.
