DescriptionHourglass shaped, metal wire brazier used to heat up charcoal for boiling water and occasionally for lost wax casting. This is a commercial item, usually not produced by Tuareg inadan, but purchased at markets. The structure of the brazier allows for air flow facilitating a quick heating of the charcoal.
