This incense-burner was cast in 1748. It stands 4.2 metres high with six openings to let out flames.

Above each opening two dragons playing with a pearl are cast in bas-relief, while on the pedestal a design with three lions contesting for a ball is portrayed.

As one of the two bronze tripods of its kind ever found in China, this is really a treasure trove. The other one stands in the imperial Garden in the Palace Museum.
