Tall Carved Persian Brass Incense Burner Qalam Zani

Intricately carved in Persia (Iran) approximately 1950. Revival piece reminiscent of Qajar era, the revival of this style of art occurred under the rule of Shah Mohammed Reza Pahlavi. It measures 22" tall by 6.5" in diameter, and weighs 2.5 pounds before packing. A lit incense cone is dropped into the top and allowed to burn, with the smoke filtering through the piercings. This would make an excellent lamp conversion.
