A hand-carved Incense Censer in natural stone - Venice style
Incense Censers are generally larger than Incense holders and bowls - this item being just over 5 inches tall. It comes in two parts - a lower 'bowl' and upper lid. This censer recalls Venetian architectural details - the pierced stone is a nod to the intricate arcades of the Gothic style found there.
When burning resins and cones with this censer, keep the lid on and the aromatic smoke will diffuse through the holes into the room. Remove the lid when burning Incense Sticks. The large size of this Venice censer makes this ideal for Japanese, Indian and Tibetan Incense Sticks.
The lower bowl element needs to be filled with sand, which we sell (follow these links) Black Volcanic Sand, White Marble Sand, Orange Sand and Red/Brown Sand.
Each Venise Censer is handmade from natural stone, so each one will vary slightly in appearance and weight.

Tips on burning Incense Sticks:
Light the tip of the stick with a match or lighter, then gently blow or fan out the flame, leaving a red ember burning at the tip of the stick. Then insert the stick into the holder.
Things to be cautious about when using this incense holder:
Incense sticks are safer than candles – no open flame – but please be sensible; do not burn unattended. Don’t place in a drafty position (will burn down too quickly and dissipate aroma). Make sure Incense is fully extinguished before leaving the room. Keep out of the reach of children and animals.
