It is missing the cigar, which would have been in the left-side of the mouth, to "channel" the smoke through it, as the base is vented to create an updraft. If website visitors know what the cigar was made of ( metal / ivory / wood ), please send any information you may have.
It is bronze over a spelter ( pot-metal ) base. The burner is approx. 5 1/2" tall.

 Theme of the month : MongoliaDuring a trip to Mongolia, I took some incense burner pictures in various locations (temples, museums, yurts...)
Very often represented on mongolian incense burners are the eight auspicious symbols (naimin takhel) that are associated with the gifts given to Buddha: the white conch shell, the precious umbrella, the victory banner, the two golden fishes, the Dharma wheel (eight-spoked golden wheel), the Auspicious drawing (knot of eternity), the lotus flower and the treasure vase
