This Japanese porcelain incense burner is about 3.5", including handles, x 3" high, including finial, marked "Made in Japan" with maker's mark. A very common style and theme of incense burner in Japan in the past. This one is well used but not too abused. I have been looking for an inexpensive example and this one came along. Aside from a bit of chipping to the bottom of the lid and a bit of paint loss, it is in pretty good shape. The coloring and decoration was all hand painted. I don't use the type of incense which fits into a burner like this, but may get some and christen it. Marking it Mystery Unsolved until I figure out the maker.
