This is a really old oriental brass planter. I think it is Chinese but not 100% sure. Weighs a bit over 2 pounds. 6" tall. 6" inside diameter. Has 3 legs that are 1.5" tall. They are what looks like grinning tigers. Mythical tigers? On the side , it shows in raised relief, a tree with a bird approaching on the left and a bird leaving on the right. Same scene on opposite side. Floral pattern runs around the top edge. T is a 2" circular hole in the bottom. I think it is to let water drain. Overall condition is very good. Awesome patina. Bottom has green corrosion marks. I see no markings of any kind. Happy to answer any questions.
