Antique late Qing Chinese Brass Mounted Coconut Shell Libation Cup. I know nothing about this cup on a tripod mount of brass Ox / Oxen heads with a thick Brass rim. Found locally at a shop. The color and finish on the coconut shell is gorgeous. I believe it's Chinese and fairly old.I think it's early 1900's, but possibly earlier. 5.25" wide (although it's not actually round) x 3" high. The rim is separating from the shell in a spot which makes me wonder if this may be a much earlier piece than 1900's.
