Used traditionally in Indian temples, this genuinely vintage brass oil lamp is ornate and beautiful. During meditation or worship of a deity the shallow cup stored the oil that fuelled the wick placed in the oil. Use as tradition dictates (carefully!) or as a candle holder or soap holder. It would make a great key/trinket tray on a hall table. You’d never lose your keys!
