A brazier
is a larger round open ceramic stove often ornate with decorative elements such as relief decorations around its rim. The heat was generated by burning wood or charcoal. Braziers were important household objects in Etruscan society, and they were used for a variety of purposes, including heating and cooking, as well as for religious or ceremonial purposes. They were commonly used in homes, as well as in public spaces such as temples and marketplaces. Braziers are highly decorative, prized by collectors and interior designers, and are considered important artifacts of the Etruscan culture and ancient Italy.
