Chinese CLOISONNE Incense Burner, in the form of an IBIS with brass filigree tail feathers and semi-precious stones standing a full 21 inches in height on a tri-footed round base with a diameter of 9". Condition is good, but 4/18 pieces of turquoise are missing from the tail feathers. Each feather should have 3 pieces of turquoise and all have another semi-precious stone. Although not shown, the cavity under the feathers is where the incense is burned. The feathers on the back are removable. Circa at least 19th Century, perhaps earlier.
