    A miniature owl-shaped jewelled case, based on an original antiquity from ancient China. The ornament measures 6cm tall.

    The original it is based on is a bronze vessel dated to the late Shang dynasty - after around 1300 BC. The vessel is of an owl-shaped Zun (Zun was a wine container from ancient times). Unusually shaped with its head as the lid and its body resting on the tail and two claws, the original piece is one of the artistic bronze treasures of the late Shang dynasty.

    This model made by Shanghai Museum Art Company is crafted using special techniques that represent the craftsmanship of the Shang Dynasty.
