Brazier of Sultan al-Malik al-Muzaffar Shams al-Din Yusuf ibn 'Umar  This only surviving Mamluk brazier, one of the best examples of inlaid metalwork, was dedicated to the Rasulid sultan of Yemen, al-Malik al-Muzaffar Shams al-Din Yusuf ibn 'Umar (r. 1250–95). The attribution is confirmed by the presence of the five-petalled rosette, the emblem of the Rasulids. Such braziers were probably used as grills and heaters.
