The basis for binding genies or jinn to household objects comes from medieval Islamic lore surrounding King Solomon of Israel. King Solomon used a magic ring to control djinn and protect him from them. The ring was set with a gem, probably a diamond, that had a living force of its own. With the ring, Solomon branded the necks of the djinn as his slaves.
One story tells that a jealous djinn (sometimes identified as Asmodeus) stole the ring while Solomon bathed in the river Jordan. The djinn seated himself on Solomon’s throne at his palace and reigned over his kingdom, forcing Solomon to become a wanderer. God compelled the djinn to throw the ring into the sea. Solomon retrieved it and punished the djinn by imprisoning him in a bottle.
One vintage brass lamp burner great for cone or small incense pieces. It has a beautiful patina you can polish & clean if you wish, personally I think it adds character. <3
This piece could also be wicked and used as a oil lamp
