This is a vintage Japanese wooden hibachi, brazier from Taisho period (1910's-1902's). Originally, this container to hold burning charcoal was used as a heating device.
Today, this very attractive object is ideal for a display of curios in your house or it will work wonderfully as a planter since it has nice copper lining.
