Elemense Acorn Brass Incense Holder

Regular price $26.50 Unit price  per 

Description:
Made with well-honed craftsmanship in old downtown Tokyo, this incense holder was inspired by a brass cylindrical bar.  Its simple design is the result of a turning process that requires extreme precision.  The holder's shape also resembles an acorn, which is where it gets its moniker, and has an opening for incense on either side.  The geometric shape of the holder, and placement of the allows you to rest the acorn at different angles to let the incense point straight up or at a low or high angle.

Variation:
The brass metal of this holder will patina (darken in color and spot) slowly over time.  Designed to best fit the wide incense featured in the Elemense Incense line.  

History:
Designed by Tortoise owner and Hasami Porcelain designer, Taku Shinomoto, this solid brass incense holder is suited for the wide core incense of the Elemense incense line by Japan's oldest incense company, Nippon Kodo.
