I was given this cast iron pot recently.
Does anyone know anything about style, age, etc.
Thank you in advance.

No idea but I know there are tons of fake "antique items" coming from China these days. FWIW

I'm sure there are fakes out there.
This one has no drain holes and a pattern used to make this casting-not made using the original as pattern.
It was cast upside down.

I saw them used as incense burners in friends' homes in Japan.
