A nice incense burner, about 3" high, hollow inside with a hole in the bottom of the edge of the bowl for the smoke to come out of.
It looks like (with a lot of help from Jim, thank ü, its been fascinating) that this is likely from the retailer Vantines, from the Art Nouveau period. Though its unsigned, it would have once had a base, which she knelt on & to put the incense on that would have had Vantines scrolled on the underneath of it. I've added a link below with an example.
Aww she's a bit more damaged than i first thought. I was so taken with her i didn't notice she has a nasty hole down by her feet and a couple of tiny ones. I would've still bought her though, she wasn't expensive & i think is absolutely charming.
