Chinese (Sino) Tibetan Repoussé Ceremonial Ewer'Duomuhu' with Cover, 19. The cylindrical and slight conical body divided into four sections by horizontal bands, all below a lobbed crown rim resembling a monks cap adorned with a large reserve of kirtimukha (face of glory). The Duomuhu is set with a curved spout issuing from the mouth of a mythical beast, opposite a'S'-curved handle that is fronted with an elaborate depiction of Durga Mahishasura.

The body is adorned throughout with repoussé floral, foliate and fretwork motifs, including roundels set with semi-precious turquoise stones. (W)20 x (H)26.5cm.

The condition is fine, consistent with the estimated age and the material used. Duomuhu' ewers derive from Tibetan Buddhism and became popular through the first Qing emperors. Duomuhu, meaning bucket for snow in Tibetan, were used in Tibet for storing butter and making the traditional buttered tea for Buddhist ceremonies. Originally made of wood with metal bands. The formerly wooden vessels became prestigious works of art, made out of silver, gold, porcelain or cloisonné.


The distinctive scalloped gallery above the handle on this ewer appears in a group of porcelain ewers, described as in the shape of a Tibetan monk's cap such as early 15th century.
