This white porcelain incense burner, featuring an openwork design on the body, is made of fine clay with high-iron content, which has tinged the surface with dark gray. 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.
