Description

It is unusual to find braziers made from bamboo, but this pair is both functional and beautiful. The baskets are woven with double walls, with nearly an inch of air between them, insulating the live coals in the copper lining. The painted and gilded strips of bamboo that punctuate the design are made from antique arrows.
