Vintage Folk Art Swedish candle ring or circular shaped candleholder, hand painted with tole work flowers. The ring is small, just 5 1/2" across and just under 1" high. It has holes for 7 candles. The color is dark blue with pink rose-like flowers. It is marked "Made in Sweden" on the bottom. It would have been used for Santa Lucia's Day or as a Christmas centerpiece.
The ring shows some vintage wear and loss of paint on the outside edge. The wear is not as apparent "in person", as blues do not seem to photograph well. All sides of of the ring are shown. This folk art candle holder is about 45 years old.
