Item Description
此爐名為象首耳圈足爐,取其太平景象之吉祥寓意。明代宣德圖譜中有許多款式,皆源于青銅器及宋代瓷器兩者文化之融匯而精心設計的。如冲天耳、蚰龍耳、獅首耳、馬槽、鬲式等等。此爐也,形態典雅莊重,法度周正嚴謹,素面、口平、身圓,頸部略收,腹部豐膄,中間加一道凸起的弦紋,環繞規整,此道弦線之工藝頗難,一般師傅難為,惟見于官造爐或名家手中,古代一般爐少見也! 此爐以六牙象首為耳,整體綫條形態古雅生動,穩如泰山,爐身圓潤而厚重,蘊蓄著萬鈞之力,不愧為剛柔並濟的一代傳世之作!年份應屬明代早期或在中期,且必為皇家官造之傑作無疑!此爐乃圖譜之標準款式,原無爐蓋,亦無原配底座,今之爐蓋乃十九世紀清代收藏人士,特用小葉紫檀木雕配而成的,鏤空雕花,古雅豪氣,與爐身搭配,嚴絲合縫,相得益彰,望之儼然有帝王之風!由於清代蓋爐(即薰爐)使用很普遍,古代無香水,皆用香木燃薰其衣服、身體或在室内薰香以作淨化之用,有蓋是避免衣服之類,觸及爐中火苗。清代人收藏到明爐,有的會精心特製爐蓋,或當作擺飾。此爐蓋為紫檀木,雖上百年而毫無裂損,包槳亦潤,搭配此爐,應為藝術陳設品,以彰顯國寶之氣派!不忍心作焚香之用也。 六牙象銅器在歷來拍賣的紀錄上已經很少,而明代六牙象首耳爐,更是空谷足音,幾乎絕響矣!足見此爐珍貴程度,其形制之正之美之妙,已臻於極致乎! This censer was named in Chinese as ‘Bronze cast elephant mask handle and round foot ring censer’, taken from the auspicious saying “Peaceful Scenery” with a play on words. Xuande censers include many designs, mostly originated from archaic bronze and Song porcelain culture, including rising ear handles, chilong dragon handles, lion mask handles, horse manger handles, Ge-type handles, and more. This censer casted with elegance, grand, and precision, rounded body with no decorations, flat rim, slightly waisted neck, body with one raised rounded bowstring Xian pattern. This censer’s six-tusk elephant was used as handles, with smooth and lively outline, solidly crafted, and it is a masterpiece no matter the time period. The censer was probably crafted during early to mid Ming Dynasty period by the Imperial Workshop, with matching standard design from that period. The original censer does not have cover or stand, but the 19th century collector used small-leaf Zitan wood carved cover to complement the censer perfectly. In Qing Dynasty period, incense burner was used frequently to cleanse cloth, body, or room, and the cover was used to prevent fire burning the clothes, and thus the collectors from Qing Dynasty period typically add specifically crafted cover to Ming Dynasty period censers. This cover was carved from Zitan wood, and still maintains excellent condition with no cracks and heavy patina, possibly was used only as decoration. Dimensions: Inner Rim Diameter: 5 3/4 in (14.6 cm) Outer Rim Diameter: 6 3/4 in (17.1 cm) Body Diameter: 7 3/4 in (19.7 cm) Height: 3 3/4 in (9.5 cm) Weight: 3814g
