A Chinese Yixing stoneware incense burner in the form of Budai, laughing as usual, grasping a small pile of cash. The stoneware has been attractively enameled with flowers and a Shou medallion decorates his back. The base has an impressed maker’s mark. 19th century.

The incense burner is in two parts, Budai sits on a large cushion, this base features a pierced disc for the insertion of joss sticks.

Approximately 15.5 cm high. From the exterior the burner is in perfect condition. Inside, the Budai part has a largish chip and also a tiny chip on the interior wall of the rim. The cushion has an inner flange on which Budai sits. This inner flange has been damaged in the past where probably Budai has been seated clumsily causing three pieces to break away. These have been lightly glued back I have shown all faults in the photographs.

Please study the photographs.
