Subject:Is this an incense burner?
Posted By: Shea Tue, Aug 13, 2019 IP:

Hi all,
I found this interesting item at an estate sale. It caught my eye because of the variety of symbolic animals. It has a frog, a lizard, a scorpion, and what appears to be goat faces, all on the cover. Then there's a snake like dragon on the front and back and a fish on the adjacent panels.
I know it isn't of high quality, but is it a censer and what type of metal is this. It is very heavy. Also, what is the origin.
I can't find anything similar online.

I just realized that I forgot to note the measurements. They are 6" x 4" x 4". | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
