AN UNUSUAL AND INTERESTING PIECE OF CHINESE BRASS! Measures about 5 3/4" tall, 5 1/4" across from handle to "head". Diameter at largest part is about 3". I wasn't sure of the metal, so I polished the bottom with Brasso (see pix 5) and it cleaned away the tarnish, which made it easier to see the embedded stamp on the bottom. I think the red and green portions are jade. The brass "armor" features a butterfly (pix 4), and dragon (pix 4) a serpent head (pix 1 & 2) a "madonna", and of course the cool monkey on the top of the lid. Weighs 9.5 oz. prior to packaging. I have two of these and know little about them. Feel free to share!
