Crystal Prism Bobeches (Pair)
Circa 1855 France, the clever crystal disc was placed around a drippy taper to catch candle drippings thereby protecting lace cloths and furnishings from damage. The glass collar offers a central opening through which a candle is inserted into a candleholder.
The concept was further embellished with dangling prisms, and fanciful etched motifs popularized in Europe. Electrified chandeliers continue to mimic the candlelit candelabras with decorative bobeches on every arm.
Candle and candlestick not included.
- Includes 2 glass bobeches.
- Beveled chandelier.

I love these bobeches but am disappointed that the chain used to connect the beads rusts terribly. I have not kept these in a damp location; they are on candles on my fireplace mantel. They should be wiped only with a damp cloth. Do not rinse them or use windex because they will rust. Disappointed with this finding.

Not the greatest quality. One arrived with the prisms detached, and I had to fix it.

I read the reviews prior to purchasing these, so I was a little concerned with the long lasting beauty, ie. tarnishing, etc. All I can say at this time is they are exquisite and definitely add a pop of bling to my my mantel. They are absolutely BETTER than I had hoped for and now I need to purchase more for gifts. At present, I can't say if they will or won't tarnish but for now they are everything I wanted.

These bobeches make a regular candle stick holder look so fancy and expensive. I love them!
