Nousaku is based in the Japanese city of Takaoka, which has been a center for metal smithing since the 17th century. Like all of the family-owned company’s products, this incense holder began with the creation of a custom sand mold. The cast brass forms were then refined and hand-finished using bladed tools. In addition to a spherical ball holder for stick incense, it includes a petite platform for cone incense.
Note: this holder was designed for use with traditional Japanese incense sticks which are usually 2.75" long.
