Sold for £11000
A Cloisonne Enamel Incense Burner and Cover, the globular body supported on three columnar legs with gilt copper animal-head terminals, the shoulder with Dog of Fo and ring handles and a continuous band of gilt metal motifs, the cylindrical neck set with gilt metal flowerheads, the domed cover with a gilded rim and reticulated knop with a flange of loose dragons pursuing pearls, the base set with a gilt metal four-character seal of Qianlong, height 23.8cms, 18th-19th Century
