    Hello friends,
    to your attention this curious copper object with bronze lid and bronze handles.
    I can not understand what it is, it's very particular, and so I can not even attribute a dating.
    Thank you all for the help offered.

    diameter 16.2 cm
    height 11.5 cm

    I took pictures with flash and without flash to give a realistic tone

    It is a brazier, to burn wood or hot coals, with one handle missing. It looks Spanish, with a Moroccan(?) cover added to it.
    Many of these were made in the 1970s. The Spanish name is brasero.

    It is a vintage brazier. But that crescent moon doesn't look Spanish. I'd think Turkey (like this one which is genuinely old) or somewhere further east.

    I agree with you; it is very difficult to read.
