My inner teenager squeed when she saw these 90’s style planchette incense burner holders and then she squeed even more when she found she could stock them! Yes I know they are tacky but isn’t your inner Nancy yelling at you to buy it right now? Mine did! Bright pearlescent paint also gives it a more stunning 90’s style look.
Perfect for stick incense or can be used for cones and is made of a polyresin.
Planchettes rose to prominence in the years following the establishment of spiritualism in America, which began with the purported spirit communications of the Fox Sisters in 1848 and the resulting popularity of supernatural-themed parlor games, séances, and experiments in mediumship and table-turning. Participants in these events would experience strange movements of tables, and communicate with spirits that indicated their messages through a series of coded negative or affirmative knocks. In other instances, sitters received more complicated messages of spelled-out words and phrases by transcribing letters indicated by the knocks or raps as the participants called out the alphabet into the empty air. Believers in these spirit communications soon began to experiment with refining and expediting various forms of communication, including pointing to letters printed on alphabet cards, automatic writing, direct channeling, and other methods.
