Hand potted antique Chinese apple green censer with matching old stand that shows a simple clean elegance of form and function.
A thin hand potted ceramic censer with a fine crackle, apple green glaze and tripod feet. The three feet fit exactly a rosewood stand that was made for it. You can see the potter’s wheel marks on the unglazed interior of the censer. The feet tips are also not glazed. The inside of the censer is stained from charcoal. The rich apple green glaze is oxidized and feels very soft and smooth. The rosewood stand has a cut out in the center with a stylized dragon. The stand also shows age.
The number 7697 written on the inside lip edge and a paper label with the numbers “44.80.183” on the base. The rosewood stand has an old paper label inside one of the foot holes. These labels were from a museum from which the censer was deaccessioned.

There are no cracks, chips, or breaks on either piece. There are kiln flaws in the form of pin holes, and black spots. The piece looks intact and bright.
A simple, elegant, utilitarian ceramic that has a richness about it. It is elevated by the matching rosewood stand.
