This 8-inch black candle holder can support a candle up to 2.5 inches in diameter and has a beautiful vintage heart design at the head of the sconce.
The entire vintage candle holder measures 21cm from top to bottom and the width of the antique heart-shaped detailing is 8.5cm. The candle plate is 7cm in diameter.
Fashioned in traditional black wrought iron the fine detailing where the metal tapers to the centre of the heart shape give this cottage candle holder a delicate yet rustic feel.
Our candle holders are all traditional and hand forged. We have been able to find a small blacksmith shop that now produces these for us. Our vintage sconces are made in the old way hand forged on the anvil. The artisan blacksmiths that make these for us are highly skilled. This will show in the finished product that you will receive.
Once the sconce has been forged it is hand cleaned and hand polished. The complete candles holder is now dipped into natural beeswax. The beeswax is an ancient way of treating wrought iron. The wax will seep into the tiny holes on the surface of the iron. This will enable the wax to form a protective coating on the surface. The wax will give the sconce its colour. The colour of the scone will be mainly black but as we want them to be aged there will also be large areas of golden brown.
You may use these candle holders both internally and externally. Our candle holders are fitted with a candle spike in the base drip tray. This spike is designed to push into the candle and hold it firmly in place. If you are thinking of using battery operated candles you will not need this spike. Please leave a message in the checkout area and we will remove it for you.
