    I've read through some posts re: Chinese bronze censers.It seems most are reproductions. Is this a repro? This one has unfortunately lost the lid but it seems old. The feet are little frogs or toads and there are monkeys and birds and flowers all carved around the outside. It is marked on the bottom. Any ideas on age? Does it still have value if it's missing the lid? Thanks.

    They don't always have lids, but this one might have had one from the shape of it - IMO this is probably a repro too, almost all ones that seem a bit fussy or extravagantly decorated are, nothing is for sure of course, but from the pics ...
