Found on Santa Fe Craigslist: Antique Meiji Foot Warmer/Incenser ($2,500)

For the Asian antiques collector with cold, stinky feet and money to burn, may we suggest this gold-accented combination incense burner / foot warmer from Japan’s Meiji era?

More than 100 years old, this rare and unique bronze, silver, and gold foot warmer was made after the defeat of the Shogunate, during the reign of Japan’s Emperor, (Mutsuhito) Meiji (1868 - 1912). Deeply patina’d bronze brazier with a 950 silver dragon motif lid accented by karat gold and black enamel eyes. Most certainly made for someone of the ruling class. Exactly 8”x 8”x 8”. Asking $2,500.00.
