This is an Arabic incense burner. I saw this golden mabkhara in one of the abaya shops at Bawadi Mall. The use of an incense burner is very typical among Emirati families. They usually burn their oud and bakhoor soaked in fragrant oils in a mabkhara and pass it on among their visitors and guests as a gesture of hospitality.
This photo was taken last Thursday evening when we headed to the said mall to eat out at Papa John's.
Word of the day: mabkhara is the Arabic word for an incense burner. Salaam!
