First, it is not an incense burner, but a cricket box. The vessel used to rise crickets for fighting purpose. The pot is made of purple sand (boccaro vare).
盆乃之佳 - The only fine pot
君得藏將 - what a gentleman can store (collect)
許小忠制 - Made by Xŭ Xiăozhōng
大清咸豐三年品 - Made in the Third Year of the Xiánfēng in the Qing Dynasty （1853)
Lid (?) marking,
靑 - Qīng - Unidentifiable mark
I think it is a nice fake item.
