    I have his spectacular incense Egyptian Revival incense burner which stands 5 1/2" tall x 2 1/2" diameter across the open bowl and the base measures 7" in length x 3" wide in the middle. It features two nude women kneeling on a plinth with the symbol of the winged sun disk on each side, with Nekhbet, the vulture-goddess of Upper Egypt on the right and Wadjit or Buto, the tutelary Cobra goddess of Lower Egypt on the left. Nekhbet and Wadjet were the protective goddesses of the king. The young women's hands are resting on either side of a large central incense bowl with relief decorated lotus flowers on the sides. There is some incense residue in the bowl from use but it is in otherwise excellent vintage condition with no breaks, cracks, dents or damage. It still has the original green felt on the bottom which appears to have shrunk, perhaps from moisture.

    The piece is signed on one end P. BENEDUCE (Paul Beneduce) and at the other end is ©P.M. Does anyone know if the P.M. stands for Paul Mori and Sons of the Galvano Bronze Co.? Or could it stand for Peter Manfredi? Thanks in advance.
