Tagus copper egg cooker

My egg cooker seems to be complete. It has the insert for the eggs and a little thing with a handle that sits below. I have no idea what to put into it to heat the cooker. I've looked over the internet for information but all that pops up are sites where Tagus copper is sold (e-bay, etc) There are a few of these egg cookers though they seem to have pieces missing. I'm hoping someone has answers to these questions.
1. On the selling sites, the egg cooker is called "vintage." When were they made?
2. How does one use it? What is put into the little item that sits on the bottom?
Thank you for any information.
