Dancing in the light of glowing coals, the intricately rendered figure and fanciful fish that adorn this 19th-century brazier must have delighted those warming their hands over the heat. The Chinese character for fish is pronounced the same as the Chinese character for surplus so fish are considered symbols that bring a sense of good luck. Skillfully crafted out of brass, the brazier was used during cold weather in China’s northern provinces.
