A block of incense would have sat in the hollow section and the scent of the bakhoor would have escaped through the pierced grills. It is possible that a piece of coal (on which the piece of bakhoor would be placed to burn) was taken from a large fire and the purpose of the pierced handle is to stop the heat moving up the handle and burning the hand. There is a lot of detail on this beautiful piece and it is in excellent condition with areas of wear that result in an overall wonderful ancient patina.This beautiful piece has all the associated wear and tear that one would expect from an ancient piece that has been in the ground for several centuries. The four ball feet are intact and there is is a rosette motif in the centre of the underside, surrounded by another circular design.
Three sides are pierced with one or two very minor losses on the piercing. The four knops are beautifully shaped in a triangular conical shape. Looking from above, the hollow section is also shaped to look like a rosette.
The long hollow handle is also pierced and there is a beautiful terminal with a knob and finishing with another rosette at the end of the handle. This wonderful miniature cast brass (bronze) incense burner is only 175mm long by 60mm high by 60mm wide. Please note that due to encrustation on the inside of the handle, the handle has become heavier so may topple unless a totally flat surface is used.
