A large archaic style bronze (copper tin alloy) incense burner on three legs with lion head terminals and with tall flared flange edged handles. The body is decorated in relief with the Eight Daoist Immortals and above them, centrally, on the front is Shou Lao / Shou Xing, the Star God of Longevity, seated on a recumbent deer.

This item was probably used on a home or temple altar dedicated to the veneration of ancestors.

This censer was made in China in the Ming Dynasty, possibly during the late 15th or early 16th Century. Similarly shaped stoneware tripod incense burners, some dated, were made in this period. The wood stand and cover are possibly contemporary with the incense burner. The soapstone lotus finial is carved in Ming dynasty style.

Condition: the casting is crude with typical minor losses ; additionally the two back facing immortals have been decapitated.

Height: with stand 32 cm; without stand 23 cm Width: 19.5 cm Weight: without cover and stand 2.36 kg
