Brazier with Decorative Cover

Spain
19th Century
Cm 50 high x 70 wide

A Spanish brazier, or "brasero," made of brass and wood, used to heat areas of a home (or castle) by holding burning coals in its concave bowl. The domed cover protected the embers while allowing the heat to emanate through its perforations. This example is complete with a paddle-like "badila" or "rasera," the tool used to tend the hot coals.

Braziers of various designs have been used for thousands of years in Europe, the Middle East and Asia. In Spain, braziers were one of the primary methods of heating homes until the early 20th century. Very decorative, this brazier can add some exotic charm to a sitting area, salon or library.
