We travel the world looking at slate. These tea-candle holders are produced for us in northern Wales. Interestingly, geologically, it is the same as the slate from Canada that we use to manufacture our slates in the US. Whether you want a single, uniquely shaped candle on a mantle, several single candles in a row across the table or a group of three to light an intimate dinner, you will love the smooth feel and warmth of this slate. Candles are included - so you're ready to go right from the box.
