public_access_description
In ancient China all bronze ritual vessels had a specific name. This tripod is called a 'ding'. A ding was a ritual vessel used in ancient China to contain food during rites for the ancestors. These vessels became a collector’s item because of inscriptions cast on their surfaces, in scripts that were no longer in daily use.
