Incensario
7.5" x 6" x 6"
Silver
Region: Bolivia
The incensario, or sahumador, became a part of Spanish culture under the influence of the Muslims. In South America, sahumadores were used either for perfuming homes or for perfuming clothing and bedding. The pomegranate was a popular form used to burn incense in a room. This hammered, repouse, pierced and chiselled silver incense burner sits on three feet and is an excellent period piece.
