Product Description

Set of 2 Tribal India Antique Dohkra Brass Cast Fish Incense Holders

Circa early 1900s, these solid brass cast fish hollow incense burners are a true conversation piece and a nice item for any collector. Purchased in a container of antiques from New Delhi, India, both pieces are in good condition considering their age. They are 100% hand made and hand cast with great detailing. Dhokra (also spelled Dokra) is a 4,000 year old metal casting technique using non-ferrous metal and a "lost wax" method of casting. It was used traditionally for Hindu tribal accouterments, display items, as well as lamps and incense burners. These two fish have 4 little legs so they stand up as shown. Each of these fish have a lower trap door with hinge to insert blocks of incense. They both have a very green patina, which is excellent, or they could be polished to shiny brass. One of the fish has a perforation or tear in the side, but on only one side, of the one fish as shown in the last photo.

Dimensions are: 7.5" long X 4" tall or high and 2.25" deep. Again they are hollow, but solid brass and weigh about 12 ounces each. Shipping weight combined would be about 2 pounds packed.

Sold As Is: $99.00
