physical_description
This is an early form of the bowl. It is also a rare example where the inlay decoration can be seen on the interior as well as the exterior. The slender dragon is called a 'chi' in Chinese. To achieve this double-sided design the chi would have been made beforehand and affixed to the mould, the molten bronze then being cast around them.
