You'll be proud to place this Mercury Glass candle holder set on your tabletop. The styling is beautiful with a black metal base, hanging clear acrylic crystals, and Gold Mercury Glass to hold your candles. Use tealights, votives, or short pillar candles up to 2" in diameter and 2.5" tall. The Mercury Glass is 3" in diameter, 3" tall, with a 2.5" opening at the top. You will get a set of 2, and there are 2 heights: 10.5" and 13.5" tall overall. The Mercury Glass is GOLD and has "spots" (like all Mercury Glass finishes) that allows the light to really shine through. You get a very unique and especially stunning look when candles are lit inside. This finish also adds a fancier touch than plain glass when the candles are either unlit, or if the room is too bright to see the candles. As evening wears on, the look becomes even more dramatic!
