Antique Middle Eastern brass and copper censer or incense burner Antique Middle Eastern brass and copper censer or incense burner

Huge antique brass and copper Middle Eastern censer / incense burner with elephant motif; Circa 19th century, unsigned.  It comes apart near the center (pictured) - that does take some effort since it is a rather tight fit.  The construction of the body and feet is dovetailed; measures about 42"h (if you hang it, the top loop will add several more inches) and approximately 28" diameter end to end at widest (dollar bill shown in image for size comparison only).  Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition - there are dents and dings, a sizable dent near the top being the most noticeable flaw (notice the bottom and side edges of the panels for instance).  Surface wear and scratching, patina buildup to the surface.  Please see photos.
