About

Chinese bronze vessel/sieve for food from the Warring States period 722 BC–221 BC. This bronze comes with a Japanese paulownia wood box with inscription by Zoroku. Hata Zoroku was a goldsmith and metal worker famous for both his own work and for being a known collector of ancient Chinese bronzes. The Zoroku name has continued through the generations with more recent members of the family keeping with tradition.
