Hibachis were originally small portable bowls used to hold burning charcoal. They were most often used for warming small Japanese homes or as hand warmers. A grill could be added to the top for cooking and purpose-built hibachis are still used for cooking today.
This hibachi has a bowl of cast iron which was typical of the period.
