Cast Iron Candle Holder with Handle

Regular price $ 42.00

This is a cast iron candle holder specifically made for warōsoku (traditional Japanese candles). It securely holds all sizes of the warōsoku we offer.

The surface of the candle holder looks rough, but is actually smooth to the touch. The round handle makes it easy to carry. Two short legs and the handle create a space between the bottom of the candle holder and the surface it sits on to prevent overheating.
