Deccani Sultanate Period Bronze Incense Burner Peacock

It isn't often we get to offer a true 15th Century museum piece but this is it. This solid bronze incense burner is from the Deccani Sultanate period of India. The Deccani Sultanate is a term used to cover five short-lived Islamic kingdoms or sultanates of Turkic origin in medieval India. The sultanates ruled from Delhi between 1206 and 1526, when the last was replaced by the Mughal dynasty.

This original 15th Century bronze incense burner features two peacocks. The smaller one is the lid finial to the incense holder. The piece measures 5 1/2 inches across by 2 inches wide and 2 inches high. There's a hole at one end, presumably to hang when not being used.

This rare antiquity comes from a private collection and was once part of an exhibition at the Lowe Art Museum in Florida. The very few other incense burners from that period we've been able to find are in museum collections or have been sold through the prestigious auction houses. We sell our treasures on Ruby Lane...this is the first time this piece has been offered for sale.
