This unique gift made from a complete wine barrel stave includes five tea light candles in glass holders. This version is convex, with the ends gracefully sweeping downwards to stand on the ends with the center raised.
Use as a stand-alone candle decoration on a side table or as a centerpiece candle for your dinning table.
I have preserved the character of the wood. With a graceful upward curve, the top of the candle is coloured a deep purple from the red wine that the barrel held for years, and the bottom shows the greyish age of the outside of the barrel with white bands created by the metal barrel straps. The wood is hand finished with durable and beautiful glossy tung oil.
Each item is unique in its exact measurements and colours. Widths vary from 2 1/2 inches to 4 inches depending on the barrel maker. Inside colour varies with the type of wine, the age of the barrel and where that particular stave was located as the barrel was stored on its side. These candle holders are made from white wine barrels so the underside (the side exposed to the wine) is not heavily coloured like a red wine stave would be.
Includes one barrel stave with five cut-outs, five glass tea light holders and five tea light candles.
This is an excellent gift for yourself or any wine enthusiast.
