silver ember bowl (chofeta, brasero) - Spain


Spanish antique silver ember bowl (chofeta, brasero) This is a silver ember bowl with an embossed cup standing on three paw feet. It has two wood handles and Spanish hallmark of 18th century (presumably Cordoba) and silversmith's hallmark F over xxRIA.
Bowls were used by smokers to light their pipes and cigars from hot embers placed on the table without burning it. These devices were called "pipe lighters" or "smoker's brazier" and in Spanish "chofeta" and "brasero" (braserillo).
The ember bowl is 8 3/4 in. wide (cm 22,5 with the handles) and was bought from a Italian dealer in an Antique Market.

This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the right bar of this page there are some links to silver and antique dealers websites
