An ancient bronze tiger kettle has made its debut1 at China's National Museum on Tuesday, January 29, 2019.
 
一件青铜虎鎣周二在中国国家博物馆亮相。
 
 
159 years after it was plundered2 by the British army during its destruction of the Old Summer Palace in northwestern Beijing in 1860. The kettle dates back to the late Western Zhou Dynasty (1046—771BCE).
 
China's National Cultural Heritage Commission has been credited with helping3 repatriate4 the Chinese artifact, which was set to be auctioned5 off in the UK early last year by the artifact's private holder6. After six-months of negotiations7, Chinese authorities were able to secure the return of the tri-footed water holder.
 
It arrived back in China in November.
 
In a bid to capitalize on the Spring Festival holiday, the Museum has launched a special exhibition for the kettle.
 
It includes details of its functionality, the patterns and inscriptions8 on the relic9, as well as an explanation of how authorities were able to secure its return to China.
 
The exhibition is free for one month.
