The medium-sized but heavy bronze censer is decorated with deeply-cast panels of birds, trees and animals. The lid has cloud cutouts for the smoke to escape and a male foo lion holding his paw on the world. Handles of upside down foo lions jut out from both sides of the body. The censer rests on a round base with three foo lion mask feet.
 
The golden color of the underlying bronze is visible along areas of wear on the mouth and lid.
