Chinese incense clock
Chinese powdered incense clock, 3 inches in width and 4 inches in height. The clock consists of 3 trays, 2 “maze” stencils and a latticework lid which protects the incense from being extinguished by the air. This clock measures time by burning powdered incense along a pre-measured path, with each stencil representing a different amount of time.
