Korean Bronze Censer Choson/Joeson Dynasty 19thc - For Sale

Korean Bronze Censer Choson/Joeson Dynasty 19thc
Price: $545.00
This is a nice bronze censer dating from the 19thc probably early.Because Korean bronzes have a high zinc content they are strictly speaking a type of brass,however the castings such as this take a very good patina because of that.
This is a piece that would have been used in special religious ceremonies and is unlikely to have been privately owned.It is made in at least five separate pieces all cast and then inserted into place and the ends turned over to retain them.The legs appear to have been cast with the body though I could be wrong.
The lid has the eight trigrams of the I Ching and the handle to it has five impressions probably representing the five elements of the Asian Cosmology namely wood fire earth metal and water.
Although this piece has seen much use it is in very good condition and stands 7 in, high
