The Partou Candleholder Contains Backup for When the Lights Go Out

For practical reasons mostly, tea lights have become a popular choice when electrical illumination is either unavailable or undesired. More importantly for the former purpose, there is a definite handiness to the Partou Candleholder.

A collection of the short wax and wick items is stored within each ceramic vessel. A depression in the crown of the accessory fits a single candle and four fresh ones can be stashed within the hollow cavity below. Amir Alizade sculpted a rectangular opening in the base of the votive vase to provide access to this tiny chamber. When fully stocked, the Partou Candleholder stores about 17 hours of illumination.

If taller tapers are more to your preference anyway, this piece of practical decoration succeeds to lengthen the silhouette of the stout burners.
