Chinese White Brass Happiness Brazier, c. 1850

US$1,180

About

Filled with burning coals, this petite 19th-century brass brazier once warmed the hands of a well-to-do person on a cold winter's night in northern China. The brazier is crafted of white brass in a rectangular form, complete with a hinged handle and an intricately pierced lid with a chrysanthemum pattern. The exterior is etched with a pattern of golden coins and bats, symbols of happiness, longevity, and wealth. A keepsake from a bygone era, this fine brazier retains a quiet elegance and looks lovely accenting a bookcase or console table.
