This only surviving Mamluk brazier, one of the best examples of inlaid metalwork, was dedicated to the Rasulid sultan of Yemen al-Muzaffar ibn `Umar (r. 1250-95). The attribution is confirmed by the presence of the five-petalled rosette, the emblem of the Rasulids. Such braziers were probably used as grills and heaters.
