jgibb102 Store ANTIQUE CHINESE XUANDE MARK TRIPOD INCENSE BURNER CENSOR 17TH-18TH C. This is for an antique Chinese bronze Xuande mark tripod incense burner censor, early Qing - late Ming dynasty, 17th - early 18th century.
Made of bronze, of compressed globular form, with a lipped rim, on three short tripod supports. The underside is cast with a six-character xuande apocryphal mark (1399-1435), although this actually dates from the late 1600's or early 1700's. There is an small old patched repair to the underside, which is consistent with Daoist use. This censor measures 7.8 cm in width and 4.1 cm in height. It weighs 157 grams.
This censor would have had two loop handles, which had been filled away in antiquity, perhaps for ease of carriage, the remnants of the handles are visable along the top edge of the rim. The condition is otherwise excellent, the bronze is unpolished, with a good soft patina. Please see images.
