I found this little guy at an estate sale in Seattle. The seller didn't have any information on it, and the only mark it had was inside the vessel itself.

    If the eyes are perforated, it's an incense burner. You would put and incense cone inside, and the scent would come out of the eyes.

    The eyes, and portions of the eyelids, are both perforated. He stands about 7" tall. I had considered that he might be a candle holder, the eyes would light up quite well, but the incense burner idea is also a strong possibility. Thanks!
