The Plug-Shaped Trompe L'oeil Candle Holders

These trompe l'oeil are electric candle lights and non-electric flame-lit candles, and now there's a hybrid plug-in flame-lit candle. What's the catch? The plug-in fits an electrical outlet alright, but that has nothing to do with the candlelight.

This inventive handle holder is made of non-conductive insular materials, but it plugs into a standard (German) outlet. The end result is a confusion fusion of flame, electricity and light.

Implications - These candles are the perfect solution for structures made of wood, or for those afraid of fire. They offer a safe solution to lighting that is warm and beautiful.
