Incense Burner or Censer Hammered Aluminum Made in India.
This unique vintage hammered aluminum incense burner or censer is shaped into a round pot and features a perforated lid with a prism-shaped Lucite knob handle. It has a twisted aluminum and brass rope-like handle that is set on each side by matching brackets that allow the handle to swing freely. Pot has a flat bottom.
All around the body of the pot is an intricate band of hammered designs in a row of leaves with tiny squares in between each leaf. The lid has a matching design in its center under the screw-attached knob and has decorative holes and uniquely shaped perforations to allow the incense smoke to escape and fill the air. The hammered work on this piece is exquisite!
