This Candle hold measures 4 1/2" tall. The wide base gives it stability, measuring 4 1/2" in diameter. The top portion holding the candle is larger than a standard candle measuring 2 1/8" across the top and tapering to about 1" at the bottom. There are candles on the market today which work quite well with this holder. It is not marked and has a simple design. The dark patina makes the candlestick very desirable.
