Stainless Steel Modern Oil Candle


At this price ($88.00), this stainless steel modern oil candle would be a super-luxury stocking stuffer, and I'm also not too sure about the environmental implications. But my Friday luxury posts are for those items that would go in my fantasy stockings, and I have to say, I wanted this modern, minimalist oil candle the moment I saw it. Its design is so simple and elegant, and I can just see it as part of a blue and silver themed stocking, and as part of chic, silvery table setting....

On the off chance you're rich enough that you really could spend $88.00 on a stocking stuffer, I'll mention that the stand is 4" x 2" and the candle is 5" long and 1" in diameter. It uses high-quality smokeless lamp oil available at hardware stores, and one filling of oil lasts about eight hours.

And just in case you're in sticker shock now, don't forget that it's only on Fridays that I post the luxury items! You can click on my "under $5" or "under $10" labels in the left column of this blog to get back to reality!
