Guest Book
This is a Japanese (faithfully and skillfully) executed reproduction of a Chinese Fukien 15th Century CENSER (filled with sand and used on a Buddhist alter to burn incense.) The soft cream colored crackle glaze is well applied and covers about 70-80% of the footrim. The color is actually more white-cream than the bluish tinge in the photo. Bottom is unglazed. (see photos) Even the pair of well molded embossed lion head handles (which were a carry over from the Chinese bronze vessels) are well crafted. I believe that this is circa mid 19th Century. Condition is perfect, no chips, cracks or fritting. Diameter is 6 and 5/8" and the height is 4 inches.
