Approx 10cm high x 13cm diameter
Candle shades with brass carrier/ candle follower are made to order - please allow up to two weeks for delivery.
Every SG candle shade is unique due to being handpainted.
Each shade has its own individual brushstrokes, colour ways and patination that add to its charm.
The shades are made using tissue parchment backed with a 'Flame Retardent' PVC. Correct usage and fitting of the shade and carrier is essential to avoid the candle flame from touching the shade. Shades should rest on the tapered part of the carrier in order to prevent the shade tilting.
Only use straight sided dinner candles. Make sure the candle is well fitted to the candle stick and cannot tilt or fall. Be sure to trim the wick of your candle before lighting in order to keep the flame small.
Safety & Correct usage
The shade carriers are supplied with a warning label for correct usage. Please read these instructions before use. It is important that customers should use only the recommended candles (these are straight sided and contain the correct proportion of stearine) as stated on the labels. Above all never leave burning candles unattended, particularly when there are children present.
ALWAYS ensure that the candle holder has a hole which is deep enough to hold the candle vertical and secure.
ALWAYS use the correct candles (min. 10% stearine: paraffin wax). DO NOT use tapered candles. DO NOT use BEESWAX candles.
ALWAYS scoop out any hard wax from inside the carrier before re-use. NEVER twist to remove.
NEVER let any candle burn below a minimum length of 4 in (10 cm) from the base of the candle. Should the carrier become stuck to the candle, merely relight the stub of the candle and when the brass is heated through it can be easily be lifted off.
CARD & FABRIC shades are NOT flameproof!
NEVER leave burning candles unattended.
