Primitive Bronze Censer or Incense Burner, Java Indonesia

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures

Detail: Very unique with primitive figures and an incense burner shaped like a tureen with hinged lid. Vents on the lid as well as on the base. There is a warrior and – what looks to be – a hunted mythical beast. I have not been able to find any reference to such a rare and unique piece. Judging by the craftsmanship, I would say this piece was made in the early 1900s.
