We make these for your incense sticks but we have customers who use them for olives, or crackers, or cracker sized cheese slices. We have no rules. But if you use it for incense, we put a hole in the handle for your stick. Each measures approx. 12″ in length. This piece has sugar maple leaves on them on a white background, then finished in a shiny glaze. All of our pottery is lead free, and microwave, oven, and dishwasher safe.
