Antique Chinese Ming Xuande Style Bronze Tripod Incense Burner Censer - Marked For Sale

offer a superior selection of antiques and artifacts with ALL AT !
GJPaw salesis very pleased to offer an Antique Chinese Bronze Censer. This style of vessel was used during the Xuande Period of the Ming Dynasty (1368 - 1644 AD). The vessel is comprised of a traditional bombe form, raised on three short legs, with handles at the shoulder. The vessel has a dark patina and is studded with five rectangular bosses. Pieces of this type were developed under the reign of the Xuande Emperor from special "wind-distilled" bronze received as a gift from the King of Siam. Wind-distilled bronze was bronze mixed with other precious materials. The shapes were based on earlier vessels of the Han and Zhou periods. These censers were highly regarded and tribute pieces were made well into the Qing Dynasty. This particular example is well cast, very heavy, and marked with a very rare four-character mark. The vessel is in very good condition, and measures 4.12 inches tall and 6.5 inches wide (10.46 cm by 16.51 cm). It would make an exceptional addition to any collection of Chinese antiques, bronzes, or artwork in general. It would also be a welcome addition to any collection of the incense aficionado, as censers were originally made to accommodate the Chinese incense culture. This piece was originally collected in China and became part of an important Midwest collection of Chinese antiques.
