This unusual figurine was made by Petersburg casters who were inspired by 17th- and 18th-century Chinese bronze sculptures. Similar censers were usually put in temples, but in the late 18th century such decorations appeared in the living apartments of the Chinese Emperor. In the present-day interior this bronze figurine, cast in solid, may be both an exquisite decoration testifying to the taste and respectability of its owner and a rather utilitarian object which can be used for its original purpose.
