    I have been researching this piece and so far have determined it is an incense burner featuring the Fu Dog. It is a nice solidly made piece weighing 1 pound 15 ounces and is very detailed and ornate. I am curious if anyone could tell me more about this cool piece or point me in the right direction as to where I should be looking.
    I am trying to translate what the characters on the bottom stand for, but so far have not had any luck.

      Nice piece. As for the mark on the bottom. Have you tried looking in porcelain books to see if it might be a dynasty period mark? Anyway, good luck.

      Good idea, I will try that. Thanks

      The mark says Xuande period Ming dynasty but I would say this burner is a reproduction simply because the mark and legs are welded into the body of the burner so it must be no earlier than the Republic period. China didn't have electricity until early 20th century. This is my opinion but then again I could be wrong.
