Antique Chinese Qing Bronze Censer and Stand, 19th Century

About

A very fine antique Chinese Qing twin handled bronze censer with cover and stand. The censer is very finely made standing raised on three mask and paw feet with the S scroll handles formed from tongues emerging from moulded heads. The body of the censer is moulded with cartouche depicting figures in a storm and the opposite side with a man riding a water buffalo through a landscape. The censer has a pierced domed cover mounted with a Dog of Foo playing with a ball and ribbon. The censer has a wonderful age patina and also benefits from its original fitted bronze Stand. None of the elements are marked. Provenance: from a collection acquired by the vendor's grandfather who was a ships captain who sailed the Chinese coastal route and obtained such items on his travels.
