The glaze has been removed from the part covered by the lid, exposing the red body. The foot is entirely glazed; sand spurs were supported in some parts of the foot rim during firing. Cracks formed in the foot and the base during firing. This object has a larger belly and narrower foot than typical traditional white porcelain incense burners.<br />

The brazier’s lid has an intricate openwork design of lotus flower scrolls with a knob in the shape of a lotus bud. The rim has an incised, stylized design of clouds. The mounting between the brazier and the handle is in the shape of Buddhist jewel with two semi-precious stones. The handle has carved lotus flower scrolls, and the end of which is bent at a right angle and joined to a round pedestal. Rising from the pedestal is a small statue of a lion on a lotus-shape pedestal, which serves as a knob handgrip when the incense burner is held.<br />
