Description

This listing is for the first of two similar navette shaped brass incense boat. The shape is lovely, navette or boat shaped on a single column with round base, which does have some pitting on the top and a couple of dings collected over the years but still a very nice example.

As with all antiques they will have imperfections but they are part of its history and do not distract from the overall appearance.

It would probably date from around 1880/1890 and is so tactile to hold in the hand.

It has a single hinged opening which is still strong and opens and closes well and sits quite well, slight gap at the end when closed.

I was informed that these caskets where also used to hold incense, there are the remains of a powder encrusted inside which could be either, snuff or incense.
