An elegantly-shaped three-legged porcelain incense burner with more than 100 years of history, i.e. late Qing Dynasty of ancient China.

Incense burners were common items in ancient China, mostly used in family altars or temples. Most incense burners were made of bronze and a minority were made of porcelain. This particular incense burner shares the characteristics and style of bronze incense burners, deliberately made in a simplistic style (in line with the owner's faith which is supposed to be unadulterated and pure). For the same reason, color of the glaze is also simple - a reflection of unique East Asian philosophy of simplicity / purity.

Diameter is 10.8 cm; Height is 10.3 cm. Please note a spot on the surface due to manufacturing or firing imperfection. Condition is good otherwise.

Feel free to ask anything. Combined shipping available.

Kindly note that the default courier is FedEx - If longer waiting time is not a concern (e.g. ~ 10-17 days from Singapore to US, if no customs delay), please drop us a message so that we'll lower shipping cost by engaging a cheaper courier. Thanks!
