Antique Asian Estate MASSIVE Bronze Dragon Buddhist Censer with Mark
I found this massive bronze censer being used as a garden planter. The bottom has been made to allow the circular disc with the mark to be removed, incase you want to empty the censer. It measures an enormous 19 inches (48 cm) from handle to handle; 13.5 inches in height (to top of handle).
There is a very Chinese looking five-clawed Imperial Dragon on both the front and backside. The feet are very original, actual elephant heads with their trunks extending to form the bottom base of the feet. There is a 9-character mark on the bottom. It weighs 31 pounds (14 kg),
