I don't know what I have

I was given a piece about six inches tall. It's some kind of metal ornate bowl supported by three elephant heads. The top, which looks like a six sided roof comes off. Inside the stand is stamped made in France Paris, and in the roof is stamped made in France, also 1265 with a little symbol beneath. There is also the name Vantines which looks handwritten. Although it says made in France, it looks very oriental. Can you tell me what it is? Jacqueline

It's an incense burner.
