A MAGNIFICENT BRONZE GILDED DRAGON CENSER
DUAL DRAGONS AMIDST CLOUDS AND FIRE

For your consideration is this magnificent incense burner. A monumental piece measuring 17.5 inches high and extremely heavy, weighs 24 pounds. A single Dragon encircles the body amidst an array of hand-chisseled clouds and breaking waters, its scales piercing through the whirlwind of fury and claws grasping a flaming pearl. A second Dragon entangles the pierced lid. Completely hand-made and finished right down to the finest details, the most spectacular of Meiji craftsmanship. Most likely dating to the late 19th century. Excellent condition for being over a century old, shows signs of age and patina as visible in the pictures. There is some minor wear/tarnishing on some sections of the exterior, mainly the base, which is a separate piece from the sphere. Probably a bronze/brass casting. Very rare, these rarely hit the market, you'd be lucky to find another in the next 5 years. Provenance: Property of a private collection
