Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I apologize for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be a bronze Chinese censer. The designed are quite delicate and subtle. The object appears to date to the Chinese Republic era or the late Qing period. I apologize but I cannot seem to decipher the marking on the underside. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable Chinese bronze censer, dating to the late 19th - mid 20th century. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
