An ash receptacle, or possibly an incense burner, late 17th/early 18th Century.

Decorated with pavilions in landscapes and lined with gilt copper, 8.5cm x 6.8cm.

Recent research suggests  that when this piece entered the Burghley Collection, it was associated with the incense shelf  JWA 09080 which appears in both the 1835 and 1867 Inventories.
