Thirty Sixth Riddle

I have fire in my belly, but holes in my sides or head. My gift climbs upwards although I swing from side to side. Many have held me over millenia in Greece, in Rome, in England, in France, the nations of the Americas, Russia, Poland, and many more. I may be beaten of brass or made of gold. In my burning bed I hold gifts of Orient, both sweet-smelling and foul. What am I?
