For a discussion on incense stands, their origins and use, see S.Handler, Austere Luminosity of Classical Chinese Furniture, Berkeley, 2001, pp.295-302, where the author explores the inspirational role played by the incense stand in the life of the Chinese literati who would commonly use incense to induce a poetic state of mind.
