I did this message already 2 times but nothing showed on the board so doing it third time, sorry if I duplicate it, just don't know if it goes or not. 🙏
some time ago I bought this beautiful Incense burner at an internet auction in the Netherlands, no data was given, even no picture of the sign. Actually no description. When I had it at home, I decided to ask the person who sold it to me about the history of this item. As I found out, this old lady does not know anything about it because she inherited it from her parents who had recently deceased and collected works of art. The rest of the items at the auction were 17th century English furniture and some 18th century Japanese items. For this I suppose the subject is seventeenth or eighteenth century. I searched the internet carefully and found only one auction with a similar item, I will put a photo for this auction too, maybe it will help. I think I found something special. I would be grateful if any of you could tell me something about this. Before I spend a lot on an expert appraisal. Thank you very much in advance and best regards.
