Japanese Bronze Incense Burner Koro Meiji - For Sale

Japanese Bronze Incense Burner Koro Meiji
Price: $250.00
This Japanese bronze tripod incense burner or koro dates to the Meji Period, 1868-1912. It is 5.5" high, about 5" wide at the handles. The surface is decorated with raised birds, flowers including chrysanthemum, bamboo, plum blossom, butterflies, highlighted in a gold alloy. The handles are elephant heads. There are marks impressed into the base of the burner and different marks written on the inside of the lid, but a Japanese friend was unable to definitively read them.

Traditionally used to burn incense, there is residue from use on the inside. The koro is in very good antique condition, no dents or tears. There are some spots, particularly on the bottom, but I have not attempted to remove them. I acquired this piece and others from the estate of a long time collector.
