Pair of 18th Century Tripod Censors -Qing Dynasty

This pair of charming 18th-19th century copper censors are in the form of small archaic wine jars. They have some verdigris on them but they are in excellent condition.

They measure 5 1/4 inches tall by about 4 1/2 inches wide.

The tripod feet are comprised of foo dogs or temple lions with elongated tongues. They have been used as candle holders at some time and retain a small amount of wax on the interior.

There are no marks on these censors. They appear to be Chinese, made for the Japanese market. Circa 1780-1840"s.
