Chinese Incense Box

This exquisite box is decorated in black lacquer and gold leaf and was used to gently defuse burning incense. The cover lifts up so the incense sticks can be placed and lit. Then the cover is replaced and the incense smoke wafts out the open grille work. The limited airflow prevents the incense from burning too rapidly. This piece was probably part of an elaborate family shrine.
