Very rare, early 19th century, ancient Chinese monastery, large, Bronze censer
Very rare, early 19th century, ancient Chinese monastery, large, bronze censer. This beautiful, rare, ancient Chinese censer is in its original condition. It has natural ware as it is from the early 1800's. It is an intricate, eye catching bronze sculpture that has an original 24k gold painted design and pictures engraved around the bowl telling an old, ancient tale. This large censer stands 3ft tall and is 2 ft. It is heavy, weighing about 70-80lbs, made of 100% bronze and painted with 24k gold paint.
This unique, rare sculpture makes for a beautiful decorative piece for either indoor or outdoor display or could be used for its original purpose of burning incense (dried herbs, plants, flowers) as the ancient Chinese monks did. The photos do not do this stunning censer justice.
