A LARGE GILT BRONZE AND COPPER REPOUSSÉ CENSER AND COVER, FANGDING, QING DYNASTY
China, 1644-1912. The vessel is heavily cast in a bronze alloy, supported on four legs terminating in upturned ruyi heads. One long side is cast in high relief with two five-clawed dragons confronting a flaming pearl, the other with two tantric figures flanking a seated deity.

Provenance: From a private collector in Prague, Czech Republic.
Condition: Good condition with minor wear and casting flaws, some small dents and miniscule losses.

Weight: 2,851 g
Dimensions: Height 30.5 cm, Length 23.5 cm

The rim of the censer is executed in copper repoussé with finely incised scroll motifs and inlaid with turquoise and coral cabochons. The ends are cast with lion masks suspending loose ring handles, below upright handles that rise from the rim. The openwork copper repoussé cover is decorated similarly to the censer – with a ‘Chinese’ side showing a dharmachakra flanked by a caparisoned elephant and horse, and a ‘Buddhist’ side showing three deities – and centered by a flame-form mandorla with two original small hanging bells to either side.

Auction result comparison: Compare with a pair of nearly identical censers and covers sold by Christie’s New York in Fine Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art on 19-20 September 2013, lot 1530, for USD $15,000 incl. buyer’s premium.
