I think your censer is Japanese.
The reading of the mark,
意宇湖    Ou-ko (Ou Lake) Because of the camber angle the reading of the first character
rather difficult.
The continuation is clear.
西村雲    Nishimura Un
松鑄造 sho Chuzo
i.e. Nishimura Unsho Foundry
On Japanese language Google site I found the name as bronze casting artist (1859-1912) and on a link a pix of very similar censer from him.
With regards,
