Antique incense burner from Asia / India or Middle East. It has six separate containers with old paper stuffed in each compartment. Incense would be placed in the one of six containers in and lit afire. Incense was in many ways lit for religious prayer with the created fire and smoke to rise to the sky. There is religious significance to incense and not just to mask odors. Well made, the brass container has what looks like birds all around and on top of the heavy container.
It is close to four inches across and 2 1/2 inches tall. A very interesting piece. Heavy and well make. No problems and in excellent condition.
