This is a rose quartz Chinese carved censer vase, circa 1900's. The amphora-shaped vase rests on a carved rosewood base featuring an abstract leaf-like pattern. The foot of the vase itself is carved with a triangular leaf design that contrasts nicely with the swirling linear design carved onto the body. The neck of the vase features the same leaf pattern that is carved onto the foot and is flanked by two geometrically shaped handles. The lid to the vase is rimmed with a molded brass trim depicting a floral pattern interrupted by thin crossed grass-like stems. The trim also contains a loop at the back that may have been used to convert the vase into a lamp. A foo-dog, symbolic of protection, acts as a handle to the lid. The vase is in excellent condition for its age with only one chip along the opening. It measures approximately 7.75" tall, 3.25" wide, and 1.5" deep.
