Catalogue Note

It is rare to find a large gold-splashed incense burner preserved with its matching stand, which adds an element of softness to the overall object. The elegant stand derives its form from a stylised mallow flower with overlapping petals. A near identical stand is illustrated in Philip K. Hu, Later Chinese Bronzes - The Saint Louis Art Museum and Robert Kresko Collections, St. Louis, 2008, cat. no. 28 and cover.
