Green Soapstone Incense Tower & Holder
These beautifully coloured incense towers are hand-carved and painted green; made from gorara stone they each have a spiraling floral design and a floral carving on the top. They have a smooth feel and are quite weighty; this would make a lovely ornament in any room, as a centerpiece or on the mantelpiece.
The tower lifts off the base of the tower, and the base as can be seen from the pictures above can hold upto 5 incense sticks. We recommend using bamboo-centered incense sticks for these towers; anything thicker unfortunately will not fit in the base.
Please Note: Because these items are hand-carved, each item is unique and the colour may vary due to the stone used. Every tower has been hand-painted and because of this you may find occasional paint smudges.
Size of Incense Tower
Diameter of the tower at the widest point of the base is approximately 7.5cm (3"), height of the tower is approximately 26.5cm (10.5"). This tower is fairly sturdy and quite weighty; it weighs approximately 720g (without packaging).
