Bronze incense burner with elephant heads. Chinese work of the 18th century or earlier. It is made of yellow cast bronze. The cast is beautiful and of fine thickness, the body has cracked and has been reinforced by welding, it is an old restoration. The decoration of flowers and elephant heads are very elegant and very well chiseled. The finish is very nice. The handles are also in cast bronze and are riveted. One rivet seems to have been replaced (see photo). This model should have had a lid but I am not sure. Width about 14cm Translated with (free version)
