Subject:Mystery Ming?? 2 Color Sancai Asian Pottery / Porcelain Incense Burner Needing ID
Posted By: Gary Knudtzon Wed, Dec 30, 2020 IP: 2601:602:681:1290:15

VERY unusual to say the least! This Incense Burner is in the form of a Phoenix Bird with Wings and a Woman Riding in center. One piece Molded Tea Pot Shaped Incense Burner. The Tail is the only hand molded piece. The Woman Figural Lid or Top is actually Molded together with the rest of the piece NOT a Lid but solidly one piece with the rest of the pot! She has her hands raised and it is obvious that the Incense Burns into her hands because it is quite burnt stained (see pictures) and she has an air hole in her chest at hands level. Phoenix neck & head is a hollow spout going into the body. It is quite old Mummified with age actually and feel could easily go back to the Ming Dynasty Era. It is Early Drip Glazed Measuring 7.5 inches high and 7 inches wide. Has no Identification marks. When looking at it with a Loop on the face and cloths it looks like it has some minute specks of paint remains but could be Calcium Deposits also. Im asking you Experts, "Is It Chinese Or Other" - "How Old" - "How Does It Work!". ANY Information would be Great! REAL Mystery Piece! Thank You! Gary K
