brazier (plural braziers)

  1. An upright standing or hanging metal bowl used for holding burning coal for a source of light or heat.
    • March 1920, Alice Ballantine Kirjassoff, “FORMOSA THE BEAUTIFUL”, in National Geographic Magazine[1], page 264-5:
      At almost any time, while the boats weigh anchor, a small party can be seen in the stern, clustering about a charcoal brazier- a woman busy dishing out bowls of soup and macaroni, and men in palm-leaf hats, their bronzed bodies stripped to the waist, hurriedly scooping up steaming threads with the aid of long wooden chop-sticks.
  2. A worker in brass.
