Qianlong or modern?

Your censer's form, mark and bold sculpting have various period precedents, but the style of dragon and appearance of acid-washed patina are reasons for concern. Here are some images showing a 6.5-inch diam. Qianlong mark & period censer with four-clawed dragon and patina more consistent with the period style and a patina of such pieces, including an identical censer, albeit with flawed mark, which was sold by Nagel's in Stuttgart for 360 EUR (447.87 USD) in 2003.

Best regards,

Bill H.
