CATALOGUE NOTE
Large censers in the form of pagodas were placed near thrones in some of the central halls of the Forbidden City. They were considered part of the throne ensemble which comprised accessories of both practical, ritual but also aesthetic functions. See a pair of unusually large pagoda-shaped censers made of gold from the Forbidden City, illustrated in Zhenbao guan, Beijing, 2004, p. 78. A pair of spinach jade and gilt-bronze pagoda-shaped censers in the Palace Museum collection, is illustrated in China: The Three Emperors, Royal Academy
