For sale here is a RARE vintage 1930s 40s handmade Chinese export silver filigree lidded censer on a carved wood base. Entirely handmade intricate design with rings at side that move freely, and on a hand-carved exotic wood base. Although this item is in the form of a censer, I doubt it was intended to ever be used for that purpose, but rather as a decorative item to be displayed in a case. It was given a clear-coating when new, and the coating has survived quite well with little tarnish showing anywhere, once again because I believe it was never used but rather displayed as a fine art/craft item. Measures 6-1/2" tall including the base or 5" high without by 6-3/4" widest at arms by 4" diameter. The base measures 1-1/2" tall by 4" diameter. Total weight of the silver is 254.7 grams, not including the wood base, and before packing. Marked "Silver" at bottom as shown for 900 silver which is the standard for Chinese export silver of this era. Excellent vintage condition really nearly like new as shown - please view the photos, read the description, and ask all questions prior to purchase. I am open to reasonable offers from serious buyers.
