This incense stick holder has been cut and carved in central Scotland by hand from an elm bough.
Having used incense stick holders for some time I find the ones that I usually come across have ash catching channels that are shallow and narrow. My holders have a wider groove, meaning less precision lining up of the stick and a deeper groove to allow less trips to the bin, and greater surety that the ash will stay in the groove.
This elm holder has been finished with linseed oil only, giving a natural look to this wood whose beautiful variegated brown and black bands on the heartwood contrast with the creamy, speckled sapwood.
The holder measures approximately 24.5cm (9 3/4") long and 4cm (1 1/2") wide.
If you are looking for a holder made from a specific wood, please message me and I'll see what I can do.
