This is a gorgeous piece of yew and has been turned to leave as much of the original wood in place as possib;le. Both top and bottom have bark inclusins and there is plenty of the naturalk colouring from the sap and heart wood showing. It has been turned directly from a branch for thisd purpose. One for the lover of the natural and rustic look. It stands 11" gtalla and has a removable glass insert for the candle. Ideal for the contemporary decor but wouldn't loo out of place with a more traditional setting.
