Abstract: The inscription incised on a big and tall bronze lamp in the shape of a dou container from the middle Warring States Period (collection of Anfengtang in Beijing) records the manufacturing bureau, capacity, and weight. This lamp was probably used in the royal palace of the Qin State and is significant for researches on lamps and lanterns as well as weights and measures of the Qin State during the mid-to-late Warring States Period.
