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.

Very pretty. Glass not crystal so not real fancy but perfect for where I have them.

There are several of us who get together for lunches. We graduated from High School way back when, and still enjoy our friendships. I found the Victorian Tea Party cookbook in your magazine, and with the bobeches to put on the candlesticks, we will really be feeling the mood. Looking forward to more teas this way.
