Hi Blaine,
Your censer is in my opinion not jade based purely on your posted pictures. I believe it is serpentine. If you look carefully at the last picture with the broken fragment you will see said piece is cloudy/blotchy.
Based on the style and quality of said carving it is my opinion that your item is modern.

Sorry to say that this is not a collector's item.
And as mentioned , it does not look liked Jade.
