Object Description
Chinese cloisonné brazier (probably used as a jardiniere) with decoration of flowers and butterflies on a black field, with a gold "T" pattern. The brazier appears to be a product of the later 19th century. There is a patina on the interior of the metal base, but the enamel colors are bright and clean.
