  1. The last item is an incense burner. The stick of dried herbs flowers and oils will usually some how stick into the lid of the vessel. Then place the lid back atop the base and there you have it.

  3. Salt and pepper shaker and a tooth pick holder. Back in the day you used to be able to flavor your tooth picks. The last pictures are of the container you put them and and then only one would come out at a time. Tooth picks back then were flat at one end.
