This is a reproduction church candle sconce, complete with 'handle' and stands 20.5cm tall. The candle flame held against the rich gold metal feels like golden light flowing to you and through you. Slight imperfections in colour on the gold metal is part of the charm and beauty of this piece.
There is not a perfect candle 'fit' for this sconce; you will have to cut off the bottom of a classic tapered candle to get the right candle height for you, and then simply use a potato peeler to shave the base of the candle a little until if fits snugly. I am going to include a tapered candle with the purchase of this product.
