Wow - what a great idea - a "faux" pillar candle that holds a tealight - no messy melted wax spilling everywhere or expensive pillar candles that need replacing but at the same time a REAL flame. Designed and made in Germany, these candles are of the highest quality.They have been a real hit with everyone who has seen them. We initially bought them to use in our display lanterns when at shows to avoid wasting expensive pillar candles and having messy wax inside the glass of the lanterns that we were trying to sell. So many customers have wanted to purchase them that we have decided to start supplying them. Perfect for anywhere - inside, outside, in lanterns, on candle holders (they even have a small hole in the bottom for the "prong" of any candle-holder!). They look stunning simply standing alone on the mantle-piece or on the dining table...... you can always be safe in the knowledge that they will not drip onto precious or unprotected surfaces!
You simply place a tealight (preferably the sort that are in clear plastic cups) in the top of the "faux" candle which is made of extremely durable plastic but looks like real wax, light it and you have a really beautiful, realistic looking pillar candle with a real flame. No mess and no wastage. Also, with the added safety bonus that it will extinguish automatically once the tealight has burnt out. Great for outdoor use too as the candle will not melt or distort if left out in full sun like ordinary wax candles tend to do.
Available in two different styles, either a classic church candle or a version where the flame burns "inside" the candle, flickering through the translucent plastic outer.
"Classic" available in (diameter x height in cm):6x6, 8x9, 8x12, 10x12, 10x15, 10x18, 10x21 or 10x30
"Inside" available in (diameter x height in cm): 10x12 or 10x15.
The 8cm diameter candles take regular size tealights (38mmx18mm with a burn time of approx 4 hours) and the 10cm diameter candles take maxi-tealights (56mmx27mm with a burn time of approx 7 hours). Both types of tealight are readily available on the high street but we also stock here for your convenience.
Take a look at the video below....

To remove wax we recommend placing the tealight holder in warm water to melt the wax and remove it with a soft cloth.
