Our 11 inch tall aluminum candlestick can be used for both tapers and pillar candles. There is a 3.5 inch diameter inset for pillars and also a hole to use with a taper candle instead. The shiny finish looks gorgeous as it reflects the candle light onto surrounding surfaces. This holder has a really wide base making it very stable so even our tallest tapers and pillars can be supported securely. The top of the holder is 4.25 inches across so even our wide 4 inch pillar candles can be used with this holder. Create elegant centerpieces for your home or events with this stylish piece.
