  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Firepan 
  (Ex.  27:3;  38:3),  one  of  the  vessels  of  the  temple  service 
  (rendered  "snuff-dish"  Ex  25:38;  37:23;  and  censer"  Lev.  10:1; 
  16:12).  It  was  probably  a  metallic  cinder-basin  used  for  the 
  purpose  of  carrying  live  coal  for  burning  incense,  and  of 
  carrying  away  the  snuff  in  trimming  the  lamps.
