DIA180xH80mm, China

This is a pewter sandalwood burner.  Sandalwood is a fine grain plant which can retain its fragrance for decades, however it is also one of the slowest growing tree.  To use the burner, lay in a line small piece of sandalwood (size of a toothpick) on the burner, covered with sandalwood powder and light at one end.  Wood from the center of the bark and its root has the strongest fragrance.
