A vintage, possibly antique, repousse bronze or other cast metal censer heavily decorated in flowers and foliage with a pierced cover. The censer stands on three integral feet. There are no visible makers marks or signature.
We are of the opinion that this is bronze (rather than antimony) but are not absolutely sure about this, so the censer has been priced to reflect our uncertainty. We also believe that at one stage, the censer was silvered or silver plated but this has now (mostly) worn away. Whatever its composition or its treatment, it is still a beautiful item. The censer has been lightly cleaned only in order to retain what patina there is but it may benefit from further, more expert, cleaning.
The censer measures approximately 4.75in in diameter at its widest and stands approximately 4.5in tall to the top of the cover. Weighs around 600g. Exact age unknown but believed to date from the earlier part of last century, and to be Oriental or Asian in origin.
