It is perfect for holding incense sticks and even has two small, brass plates inside for holding incense cones. The top is carved to diffuse the incense as it burns so you can use your coffin burner both while it’s open and while it’s closed. Bonus feature! Your incense burner is also designed with a storage compartment underneath the box. Simply slide open the “hidden” panel on the right side and you’ll find a convenient place to store your incense sticks until you need them.
