An early Edo period (17th to 18th century) small censer of bun shape covered in tight nashiji lacquere decorated with two soaring phoenixes lined with copper featuring a chrysanthemum petal pierced lid, both motifs symbols of Imperial grandeur. The hoya (lid) appears to be heavily tarnished silver. It is 7.5 cm (3 inches) diameter and in excellent overall condition.
