A chinese bronze tripod censer inlaid with silver wire with floral & keyfret designs. There is a two character Shi Sou mark to the base. It has a lovely patina. It has a reticulated wooden lid with what appears to be a hat finial as a knop.

Dating from the C19th., it measures 5 inches (12.7cms) across and weighs 764gms without lid.

The censer is in very good condition with only tiny bits of verdigris. There is a small split in the reticulation to the lid.
