According to the quality, the "Menhai" in the Forbidden City can be divided into bronze gilded auspicious VAT, "burn ancient" bronze VAT and iron casting VAT. Among them, the bronze gilded auspicious jar is more valuable. The number of generations of this kind of jar is less, and more in the Qing Dynasty. In front of the gate of Taihe palace, which is commonly known as "Jinluan Palace", there is a large gilded vat with a height of 1.2 meters and a diameter of 1.63 meters. The upper surface of the VAT is engraved with the words "made in Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty". The two sides of the big vat are decorated with animal face patterns to spread the head and ring ears.
As a kind of "Menhai" used for fire prevention in the Imperial Palace, the bronze gilded auspicious jar not only performs its fire fighting duty, but also shows its own solemn and noble temperament, which is amazing.
