Description
Handle only, elaborately formed in the shape of a Chinese dragon, since separated from its incense burner. Depressions under its chest and tail show where it would have been attached to the burner. The patina is quite brown, and the scales of the dragon are clear cusps on most of its surface. The casting was made in six parts and then joined. The menacing dragon has mouth open, horns raised, claws extended. It would have been a difficult handle to use affixed to the burner, and has an enhanced decorative value.

Description
An oval shaped brass box with lid attached by hinges so it can open completely. Lid fits flushly and smoothly over the lip of the body. Its overall appearance is of an oval with two domes that flatten for top and base. Picture inscribed in brass on top of a man and woman fighting while some rather anthropomorphized animals smile on, a lion, bear, and monkey (?) the text accompanying translates from the Dutch: "Living animals you can tame, but in the world lives no man who can tame his wife.” On the base is an image of a man upon whom two women are spilling "slops" from a window, at left, while at right a harried man in a cave-break is being attacked by a gryphon and a lion, and a text, translated from the Dutch reads "I would rather not love or drink than make my resting place and home with an angry woman." Interior of box is painted black, which has blistered. Some of design has been polished away.
