click for detailed views

$450.00



Wonderful old Chinese tripod incense burner with very detailed dragon handles designed in such a way that the upper half of the dragon's body appears to be coming out of the bowl. The bowl also has a large cartouche featuring a running qilin looking back over its shoulder with the opposing side depicting a resting deer partially under a tree and 2 bats in flight. The lid has raised ornamental scroll work and a finely detailed seated, head raised, Fu Lion finial. The metal appears to be white bronze. Surface shows age related wear and oxidation. Seal mark on bottom. Otherwise, a very solid piece, nice details that the photos really haven't captured, no issues. You will be pleased. Measures about 7 inches high, 7" across, 4.5" diameter. We date this circa 1980s.
