Description: Human head incense burner, designed, and patented (10/19/1921) by Mathew Y. Surigawa of New York City. In the patent application, it is referred to as "Chinaman Smoking Cigar".
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.
