A round cast iron incense burner with mark from Shanxi province. There are two panels with characters that can partially be read. The mark reads Kangxi 41 years (1701). There's no doubt the piece is from the period as oxidation is quite strong -especialy inside- and the legs show wear. The decoration consists mainly of two panels with flowers and beaded lines. There are some small casting flaws at the rim and some tiny chips missing. Other than that there is no damage or repair. Height 24cm (rim) / 29,5cm (handle) Diameter 23cm.
