This censer measures 4.5" in height and 5" in width without the stand.
I have a question that I was hoping someone may be able to help me with. I noticed today, that someone wrote on the bottom of the stand, "St Louis World's Fair 1904". This made me wonder if this Jade censer is actually a souvenir from the 1904 World's Fair Chinese pavilion in St Louis. I have one of the cranberry shot glasses from that fair, but I have never come across memorabilia of foreign content though it would make sense! :)
Do you know if such objects were sold at the fair or do could you direct me to a resource?
