Name that character.... incense burner

by Drax » Apr 13th, '15, 22:00

I picked up a supposedly older incense burner from Tibet. The bottom has two characters, the second of which is the character for silver. Any ideas what the first character might be? A photo is over here of the bottom chop...

Also... would a Tibetan incense burner have Chinese/Japanese characters on the bottom....? :D

Thanks! I should have recognized that one...

I hadn't seen 纹 before 银.... it's usually 純...
