Antique Turkish Brazier Copper and Brass - 19th Century Coal Heater or Incense Smudge Burner for Deck, Patio, Balcony Decor
A large 19th century Turkish brazier or brasero or fire pit which is a room and is bell shaped and made of brass and copper with the Ottoman Crescent and Moon finial. For thousands of years these were used to heat homes throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia by holding burning coals in the concave copper bowl. In modern days, you can use it on your deck, patio or apartment balcony to heat it, or for cultural rituals; burning incense or sage - or simply use it as a lovely decorative accent. The pierced dome cover protected the embers from flying about but allowing heat to escape. The star and crescent symbol was the emblem of the Ottoman Empire in the 19th century, and gradually became associated with Islam in late 19th-century Orientalism. I have had this for many many years and its time to pass it along. Because of its size and weight, shipping is based on both and destination.

Andrea, your store is a wonderful treasure trove and your knowledge and class are of a scholarly collector.
I am a university research professor with an eye for detail. I have never seen any vendor with your level of exquisite scholarship. Just like your fine objets d'art, your descriptions are crafted with masterful finesse; it is such a pleasure reading them and it is also a great learning experience. Thanks again! Patrick
From the first time I watched a classic movie as a young girl, and watched Astaire and Rogers float across a dance floor I have loved art deco design, art, fashion and jewelry. So bold and beautiful, and so different from anything that came before it. Art deco changed social and design sensibilities forever. A lifetime collector of high quality antiques and vintage, I started by making contacts, researching and learning. Picking the best of the best, I live with art deco and vintage decor and used to wear the fashions of the day. To say that I feel in love is an understatement. I reveled in the fact that I was able to reflect my unique style and sensibilities with a marriage of old and new. What you see in my shop is my personal collection. Since I was in my teens I have bought what pleases me, what I find beautiful and unique, and the things that speak to me on a creative level. I hope that you can see and feel the passion and love that I feel for antiques and vintage pieces and share with you. You will find art deco, collectible and vintage fine art paintings, original illustrations and magazine covers, home decor, marble, alabaster and metal lamps, nude flapper table lamps, sterling silver decorative accents and tableware for the home and entertaining, designer and estate jewelry and fine vintage watches in my shop.
