Pierced globe incense burner, made in Syria of brass inlaid with gold and silver, ca. late 13th – early 14th century. Inside the hinged body is a small cup, slung on three rings (gimbals) to stabilize the burning coal or incense in the suspended container. The inscription bands do not name the object’s owner, but repeat a string of epithets lauding him.
