A dark green cast bronze vessel in the form of a duck that is facing to the viewer’s right. It stands on its two feet that flare out flat at the bottoms. It’s body is large and round with its head standing up. Its head has a long beak, wide circular eyes, and some curved flared shapes behind its head. Its tail is small and thick. It has a wide lid on its back that is attached by a chain that attaches near the tail. The entire piece is inscribed with a swirling pattern and fine lines that mimic feathers along the body.
