This is a very contemporary candle pillar made from beech. The stem has been beaded giving it an unusual and modern look. It stands 8 1/2" (215mm) tall and the metal plate on top is 3 3/4" (95mm) diameter. It is spiked to allow larger candles to be used safely. A lovely, unique item that would enhance any decor modern or traditional. It has been finished in an easily maintained hard wax polish.
