Catalogue Candle Holders

 

 

In the early times, a candle stand used to be a cup or spike to hold the candle upright and catch the melting dripping wax, so as to protect the surface beneath. Candlesticks which still feature this spike are known as Pricket Candle sticks. They have stood the test of time and can still be found today. Gradually, candlesticks developed from purely utility products to decorative and art ware.

 

A Candle Stand is a device used to hold a candle in place. It has a cup, a spike or both to keep the candle in place. They are also known as Candle Holders which are used to hold a single candle or multiple lit candles. In the ancient times before the invention of electricity, candles were carried between rooms using a chamber stick, a short candlestick with a pan to catch the dripping wax. Although electric lighting has minimized the use of candles and candle stands to a larger extent but they are still used around the world for the special effect they create which an electric bulb can not. They work as a decorative object and also create the special atmosphere on different special occasions.

History of the Candle Holders


The earliest candlestick which has been discovered was a clay candle holder which was found way back in 400BC and it was believed that the candles were created as early as 3000 BC by the ancient Egyptians, who used bee’s wax to illuminate their path in the dark.


Candelabra were more popular with the affluent society for decoration in larger wealthier homes on dining tables for formal occasions. Although these were practical for creating far more light than a single candlestick but the design of a candelabra is more significant for aesthetic purposes. The bigger size and  grandeur of the candelabra evolved through the desire to have a lavish item as the home accent centre piece to a table and also benefit from its practical use.

Candlesticks saw a surge of popularity during the early Elizabethan and Stuart periods. However, most of these were subsequently lost and rarely found today.


During the 1600s, designs of candlesticks were predominantly silver and much stronger than the brass ones that followed them. They were usually crafted with an inverted wine cup shaped base.


Silver plate was very popular during the reign of Charles II. We can see many examples of candle sticks from this era and more fancy designs.


During the 18th century, other forms became more popular like the baluster form which later evolved into various other forms often with ornamental edges.


During the 1870s, the electric lightbulb was invented, and gradually was introduced to homes across Europe and the world. Although candlesticks have become far less common since they stopped being a practical necessity, they are still incredibly popular as decorative pieces.

 

 

Candle Holders with special candles are also used frequently in religious rituals and for spiritual means as both functional and symbolic lights. In Jewish homes, two candles are lit to mark the beginning of the Sabbath at sundown on every Friday. A seven branched candelabra, called  the menorah is the national symbol of Israel. It is based on the candelabra, which was used in the temple at Jerusalem in ancient times. A special candelabra found in many jewish homes is the Hanukiah. It holds eight candles plus an extra one for lighting the others. Tall candle sticks and altar lamps are also found in the Christian Church. A special set of two and three branched candelabras called the dikirion and trikirion are used by Eastern Catholic and Eastern Orthodox bishops to bless people at places of worship.

Selecting The Right Candle Holder

 

Candle Holders serve the dual purpose of utility combined with charm and hence they come in a variety of shapes, sizes, styles and finish, serving both an illumination and decorative function.  Whether you’re looking for something to spice up your Valentine’s Day, provide a warm glow over your holiday meal, or simply infuse some extra ambient lighting into your living space, there are many different types of candle holders available.

When it comes to choosing the right type of candle holder, you must consider the décor and furnishings of the space you intend to use it in as well as the purpose of the specific type of candle. Whether it’s for aesthetics, energy conservation efforts, or religious or ceremonial purposes, your reason for burning a candle will also dictate the right holder to choose. Some of the most popular options include taper candle holders, hurricane lamps, candelabras, lanterns, sconces, and votive candle holders.

Wooden candle holders when placed on floor or table create a special effect and the aroma of the lit candles evoke feelings of comfort and warmth. Wood is a strong material which is durable and comes in an endless array of shapes, finish, design and colours. The wood types used in producing candle holders vary greatly. It can be fabricated or a solid wood. Fabricated wood includes fiber board, chip board and plywood. These types of wood are manufactured from smaller pieces of wood and fabricated to appear as solid wood. We do not make them because of their low quality and short life. We only make solid wood Candle Holders. As the name suggests, solid wood is much more durable than fabricated wood. It also looks more beautiful and elegant. We use very well-seasoned mango wood to craft our candle holders. The most significant disadvantage of solid wood is that it is expensive but you would be amazed to see our prices as we work on very small margin just to keep the hands of our artisans busy and their families happy.

Wood finish is also an important factor when buying a wooden candle holder. They are generally two types, the penetrating and coating. Penetrating finish penetrates through the small pores in the wood. Oils and waxes are good examples of a penetrating finish. It is an excellent choice if you like the natural finish of wood with long life of the product. Hand painted, lacquer and varnish are examples of a coating finish. It has a larger range of an array of beautiful colours and mixed colour effects.

When compared to other types of candle holders, chambersticks are shorter and feature a flat, round base that is meant to catch dripping wax. In some cases, the base is ornamentally shaped or intricately designed. It helps to keep wax from falling onto the floor or coming into contact with the skin or clothing. The chamberstick is also characterized by a central socket for holding the candle, a sconce and a handle on one side. Some variations of the chamberstick feature a built-in snuffer, or extinguisher, for putting out the candle when it is no longer needed.

3. Candelabras

 

Candelabras also have a very long history. The practical reason why candelabras were invented as a variation on the candlestick was that often more than one candle was needed to write or read by before the invention of electricity.

Votive candles are taller than tea light candles and are designed with a distinctive bell top to allow the wax to melt evenly and completely. Their design creates an even mild distribution of fragrance.
