Another recent pickup. What do you guys think these things are? They came with candles (which is what you see at the top, they are hollow without any lid), but they are very oddly shaped candles and I doubt that was their original purpose. The spider cut-out on the bottom has me perplexed. Anyone have a clue as to their purpose?

    We can't see the entire thing but incense burner might be an option.
