These two museum quality cloisonne enameled censors in the shape of cockerels or mythological birds are a matched pair.

Each one measures 17 inches tall by 13 inches wide by 6 inches in depth.

They are very ornate with fan tails.

Their large, ornate tails are removable, opening them for a possible use as incense burners.

They date from the Ching Dynasty (1644-1911).

They are in outstanding condition, period.

They are covered with double facing dragon and phoenix designs (the symbols of the emperor and empress). They also have archaic plant and bird designs overall.

NOTE: These are outstanding and much more impressive in person than the photos would indicate.


On May 30th, 2012 Christie's Hong Kong offered a pair of cloisonne roosters (14 inch tall) from the 18th century( Qianlong period) at an estimate of $370,000.00-$450,000.00. They were in a standing position -versus the position of repose of the pair we are offering.
