This is a Japanese mixed- metal censer or incense burner of a kiku or chrysanthemum. This was a purchase from the U.K. and I cannot find any of the information. I do not know the age, it may have been a repainted antique, cold painted. I need to get Brent to look to see if it has been repainted since it's original form. Regardless, it is very pretty. Painted in golds, blues and pink of Chrysanthemum designed in metal. A line is seen so it is a cast piece and not super heavy weight metal. It is not signed, but it appears someone tried to find if it was as it has been scratched heavily on the bottom. Other than that, it has no scratches dents or chips and it is good condition. It is a very pretty piece.
