For many centuries, people in China have burned incense in shallow censers such as this, placed within a shrine or atop a home altar. An essential element of ritual prayer, incense is burned to measure the duration of the ritual and as a form of offering to one's ancestors or religious deities. This unique bronze censer was made in the early 20th century, but its traditional form hearkens back to ancient vessels buried in the tombs of Zhou dynasty kings.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
