|Genuine archaic bronze or something else?|

Robert, I appreciate your comments. Warring States does seem to be the latest era that the interlocking dragon design appears, at least as far as I can find.
Regarding spray patina.... I'm the photo showing the drill hole you can see the malachite chipped away when the hole was drilled. I did not include photos of the lamp, but I'm certain it is pre-1920. The lamp parts were custom made to the vessel.
Did they use spray patina then?
I'm having the vessel verified by a metalugist who has extensively researched archaic bronzes as part of his doctoral thesis. I was hoping to see if anyone could produce photos of similar examples that might save me $600, but alas....
