Censing has a long history in China. Generally, people cense their clothes to show courtesy though later it became a practice favored by intellectuals. Before the Han Dynasty (206BC-AD220), incense burners made of ceramics, porcelain, brass, iron and tiles had already come into being.

Chinese incense burners are frequently made to resemble a metal or stone dish and stand on small legs. Today many cultures throughout the world use incense burner holders for religious and spiritual rituals. The design of many Chinese and Japanese incense burners are heavily influenced by religious images, such as the Buddha or Chinese gods.
