Archaic Jade and Bronze Censer. Container. Vessel. China
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.
