This is an exquisite Incense holder hand cast in solid brass by artisans from North India. The base of the box sits on a three-legged tortoise brass stand. The base is used to light the Dhoop (Dhoop is the cone incense) and once lit, it is covered with the lid to spread the fragrance of the flavored incense all around the room. The lid is a masterpiece with an intricate design and is decorated with a beautifully handcrafted peacock in brass. The holes in the lid can be used to light the Agarbatti (incense sticks) by standing the same into the holes. This brass stand may also be used as a candle stand or oil lamp with a wick dipped in oil.
