Excellent antique bronze Incense burner with Imperial chowmark Of Ming Dynasty Emperor Xuande. The animal on the lid is a Pixiu, considered a powerful protector of Feng Shui. The lettering is an ancient form of Chinese that I haven't been able to have translated. The handles are dogs of Foo, also said to have mythical protective powers.

The censer or incense burner in neo-pagan witchcraft is used for burning incense, herbs, wood and other substances, to cleanse and purify the air before rituals. Censing, which represents the element of air, exorcises and keeps unwanted energies away from the magic site; offers sweet air to the God and Goddess; raises vibrational rates and summons energies; relaxes the senses; and contains and concentrates power. The act of burning incense or other substances is also known as carrying wishes up to the God and Goddess.
