17th Century Italian Carved Walnut Warmer Brazier
Mid 17th Century Hand Carved Walnut Foot Warmer of Northern Italian origin, it features a metal container inside, and it was commonly used in Italian noble families of 1600 as warmer, to hold hot coals or glowing pieces of wood which would push heat out through the slits on the top.
Rectangular shaped, standing on bracket foot decorated with zoomorphic carving, each side is finely carved with a succession of flowers and cartouches. Two iron carrying handles.
The hinged open lid with eyelets has five longitudinal slits, the three central ones with breaks and old restorations, designed to let out the heat escape which, in the lower part, have been coated with metal sheets.
Good age related condition, with restorations and signs of use consistent with a four centuries age.
