This charming 1940’s Japanese incense burner has a band of very detailed work on all sides of the bowl’s body. It stands on 3 feet and has an opening on the lid for the smoke to drift through the air. The bowl measures approximately 3 1/2” tall x 3 3/4” wide. The diameter of the bowl’s opening is approximately 2 2/4”. With the lid in place, the piece measures approximately 5” tall. This burner has its original finish of a dark chocolate color. On opposite sides of the main body are 2 small, slightly raised, areas without finish. I am not sure if this is for decorative purposes or if something was attached. For as long as I can remember, this burner was always in its present state. It is quite heavy.
This burner is both decorative and functional. The art of enjoying Japanese incense goes beyond just burning of the incense or the incense stick, but extends to the entire experience - including what holds the incense. The beauty of the holder/burner can often provide as much attraction as the fragrance radiating from it. This burner, with its handsome shape and design, will surely complement and enhance the experience of incense burning.
This piece is unmarked. Excellent condition without any scratches etc.
Cash only. Pickup in New Hyde Park, Nassau County, Long Island.
