A giant cloisonne incense burner.
This is a very substantial bronze cloisonne piece. It features a foo dog as a finial and 3 beast motif bronze legs. A pair of bronze dragons adorn the sides, adding elegance to the large censer. The use of turquoise, blue, red and saffron is brilliant. The contrast has a fantastic visual impact. The red cloisonne dragons on the main body are of a primitive design. Their folk artsy look is at once modern and historic.
The openings on the lid are designs of bats, which are symbols of good fortune.
This is an exceptionally large and heavy piece, beautiful and bold, truly a wonderful statement piece.
