I think is a heavy brass incense bowl. I say that because the underside of the lid seems to have smoke residue on but the inside of the bowl is very clean. One of the legs has a screw holding it in place and the tail of the foo dog is missing. I'll have to look because I am sure mum has stashed the broken tail piece away somewhere. There are no stamps or inscriptions anywhere that I can see. It really looks good on her leather topped coffee table. I'd like to know more about this item and the time period in which it was produced.
