Our Silver candlesticks have an extra heavy silver finish to assure their lasting beauty. Each of these finely crafted candlesticks or candle holders are suitable for use with 7/8 inch tapers, 7/8 inch self-fitting candles, or 3/4 inch tapers with beeswax candle fitters. Candles and Candle Followers are sold separately. Silver items are all treated with an anti-tarnish finish to help keep them shining. Please note that occasional polishing may still be necessary.
