I was born in the year of the rooster. I have also always wanted a Chinese Censer.So when I saw this beauty for sale in a closing down 2nd hand shop I had to have.It is my xmas present from my husband.I am taking it to a lapidary expert next week to have it identified.
Although the story that came with it was told it was Jade from an auction in 1974 I knew it wasn't.If it was jade the price would have been 10 times or more what I paid.I never rely on stories that come with antiquities unless there is proof as much as the person may believe it. The fact is they were told and that can be misleading even if not intentional
It didn't pass the scratch test and it has what appears to be bubbles when held up to light
whatever it turns out to be I am very happy and love it.
I hope you enjoy
