A spinach jade incense burner and cover
Mid Qing dynasty
The sturdy vessel intricately worked on the exterior with double lotus blossoms amidst leafy scrolls within vertical cartouches, rising from a splayed foot and flanked at the sides by a pair of chrysanthemum handles suspending loose rings from leafy stems, all beneath a domed cover surmounted by a heavily compressed circular knop with chrysanthemums worked in reticulation, the stone of a rich dark green colour.
