This brass Syrian incense burner is elaborately embellished. Two of the sides contain Islamic script cartouches, which alternate with two quatrefoil etched and pierced medallions. Pierced trefoil semi medallions alternate at the bottom of the lid. The base is encircled with a chain design. Measuring 5" to the top of the crescent moon finial and 3" across the belly of the lid, and with the gracefully arching brass legs 4" across at the bottom, and weighing half a pound, this piece is surprisingly heavy. This piece is estimated to be 90-110 years old.
