Early 20th C. Indian Bronze Ceremonial Brazier

Central Asia, India, ca. early 20th century CE. A fascinating and elegant ceremonial brazier, made from cast bronze. The body of the brazier is an ornate bulbous lamp standing on a round, concave foot almost as tall as the body itself. Above that is a long, narrow, decorative element that sits atop the body, with a round opening for insertion. One end swoops upward, terminating in a finial that looks like an elephant's trunk or a rearing snake. The other end has a deep depression. A matching spoon with a curved handle is included. This type of lamp is used during the Aarti (Arti, Arathi) ceremony. Size: 17.45" L x 3.75" W x 9" H (44.3 cm x 9.5 cm x 22.9 cm)
