Handmade Upright – Table top – Incense Burner. Nepal / Tibet
This burner was handmade – custom made for EsotericStuff – in Nepal by skilled Tibetans. It is comprised of brass, copper, turquoise and coral. It also employs a cloisonné enameling technique were strips of semi-precious stones and wire are welded to a metal plate in the shape of the intended design. The spaces are filled with enamel paste, fired, ground smooth and – finally – polished.
There is a seated Buddha on an altar in the base of the burner with 3 holes for stick incense. This is a one-of-a-kind piece.
A recent piece that would make a superb gift.
