A fusion of various materials that yields this stately and gorgeous vessel or container.  Called the Scholar Censer – or incense burner – most likely because of the scholar statue on the top of the lid.  Notice the geckos and birds around the mid-section.


The blend of the green jade and gold paint about the mid section is truly distinctive.


Acquired from a collector in Germany.  It has been in my private collection since the mid-2000s.


For the Serious Collector.  Stands not included.


This stunning piece has sold.  Thanks. M.S.
