Fourteen specimens of Chinese bronze from the Chou and Han dynasties have been analyzed gravimetrically (for major elements), by emission spectrography (for minor elements) and volumetrically (in two cases, for antimony). The accuracy of the results is discussed. The alloys vary a good deal, coppertin (including high-tin) bronzes, leaded high-tin bronzes and copper-lead alloys with some tin all being found. The major component results are compared with those from Gettens and from Chikashige. Results on minor components are compared with those from Gettens.
