Lot of 2 Romano-Egyptian Bronze Incense Burners

One burner is of a miniature size, with the second burner dwarfing the first by comparison. Each burner is covered in light and dark green patina. Size of largest: 2.375" W x 2.425" H (6 cm x 6.2 cm).

Condition: Tip of one petal repaired on larger burner with small nicks and light adhesive residue along break line. Both items have surface wear commensurate with age, light fading to pattern-molded details, and light roughness across most surfaces. Nice earthen deposits and green patina throughout.
