This is a very pretty candle holder. It was on sale the price was right which makes it twice as nice. It is very large but put in the right place it's a beautiful holder.

Attention cat lovers!
This is a very pretty accessory, but I bought it for an unusual purpose -- to keep kitty safe. My curious cats want to get too close to the flames when I burn jar candles (even with an Illuma-lid on), and when I burn tea lights to melt tarts in the tart warmers. So, I've been trying to find an attractive barrier to keep them at enough of a distance from the flames. I can easily fit a tart warmer or any size candle inside this cylinder. Since it's so tall my cats can't get to the top to lean down in near the flames, so it's much safer than burning a jar candle or a tea light in a tart warmer by themselves. Since the metal design is open, air can still get in to the candles & tea lights, but the cats can't get in. As a bonus, it's beautiful!
By the way, jar shades can also be used to keep cats away from candle flames, but they're easily knocked over, and they don't work for the tea lights inside tart warmers.
