This is a vintage ceramic candle holder from the 1970's and is in perfect condition. It is bright red with a finish they called "antique finish" and was very popular in the 70's. There is a green felt piece on the bottom to protect surfaces but underneath it is a sticker that says "Made in Japan". This piece measures 8" & has a 5" diameter on top. It can be used with a chunky candle or place a plate on top of the pedestal to use as a cake plate for small pastries or a cheese plate. Or, you can place a small holder in the bowl of the candleholder to hold a votive candle. It is a very versatile piece. Mod and contemporary at the same time.
