This brass incense holder can be used for the burning of incense cones and resin, or to burn charcoal discs in. It comes as two parts, the detachable lid is a funnel shape with holes in the shape of stars and sits on the base. The smoke escapes through the small holes at the top – using the lid means the smoke can go gently and not all at once. You can put a small amount of sand, ash or a dry grain such as rice at the bottom of the burner to help improve the air flow, especially with a cone. This can also help it to burn and protect the burner from the heat.
It stands on 3 brass legs which keeps the base slightly of the surface, but it would still be good to use something heat resistant underneath.
Size of Burner Total height 9cm, diameter of base 5.2cm, central cup approx 4cm.
Country of Origin: India
Safety Note: Before use, place on a heat resistant surface as the bottom will become very hot if used for charcoal.
