The tripod shape of this finely crafted bronze incense burner is a classical form first appearing in Chinese ceramics and bronzes thousands of years ago. The bronze casting of this burner is exquisite: The monkey and mythical qilin on the surface are incredibly detailed. Incense has been a part of Chinese culture for centuries and was considered to be an indicator of refined taste.

“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.”
