Hi Oleg,

I believe your censer is not very old. Casting is really bad and I never saw a poor casted censer from China in ancient time. They all have smooth skins and a clear color withy patin on it. Yours has a strange color and there are traces of polishing I do not understand. Also the feet are sawed and polished and bright brass color is visible. In China all things of value are copied and I believe this is a bad copy of a Chinese tripod censer.
