Chinese Gold Gilted Cloisonne Censer with Dragons

This very large turquoise ground Chinese cloisonne censer with original lid features on each side two chi dragons encircling the flaming pearl. The handles are five-clawed dragons. Tao tieh figures make up the three legs which are connected by the wings of three bats. The lid features openwork. In very good antique condition, there has been recent restoration work to the gold gilding. An impressive piece, it measures 19" tall (48.3 cm).
