A WHITE JADE ‘ARCHAISTIC’ MINIATURE TRIPOD CENSER, QING DYNASTY
清代白玉饕餮紋雙耳三足爐

China, 1644-1912. Supported on three stout legs, with a short neck and broad everted rim, the shoulder with two upright loop handles, the sides carved in relief with taotie masks and archaistic scrolls. The translucent stone of a white tone with minuscule russet veining and inclusions.

Provenance: From a private collection in Texas, USA
Condition: Excellent condition with minor wear, minute nibbling to one of the handles and some of the incised archaistic décor. Natural fissures, a few of which have developed into microscopic cracks over time.

Weight: 112.6 g
Dimensions: Width 7.8 cm (handle to handle), Height 4.4 cm

As a miniature of a larger vessel, this tiny tripod censer would most likely have been placed in a treasure box or miniature display cabinet, together with other small items.
