Bronze: vessels

Two tripodal bronze wine cups (jue) of near identical size and shape. One vessel exhibits more pronounced green patina. Each vessel presents a cylindrical body with a rounded bottom and an upper lip that flares into a wide triangular spout opposing a handle in the shape of a half cylinder. Each vessel also possesses a pair of conically capped cylinders either side of the upper handle and another semi-circular handle on their right side. Each vessel is embellished with three raised linear features running in parallel around their upper bodies and beneath the arch of their side handles.
