Thank you so very much, kind AmberRose!, for the gorgeous Tiffany & Co. Tophat crystal candle holder, and for the very beautiful and spiritual glass nativity ensemble! I LOVE THEM!!!
The Tiffany candle holder can be used both as a votive holder and as a pedestal candle holder - though not at the same time. (Fire Department might have something to say about that!) The Tiffany signature is etched on the bottom, and a blue paper sticker indicates that this was made in Germany. I don't know who designed this, but I do know that it is glorious! A Mercedes among candle holders it is - pure lines, perfect engineering, and perfect finishing! Remarkably beautiful.
The beautiful glass nativity is very uplifting. As befits a nativity, it transports one beyond its physical presence to the spiritual realm. Glass is the perfect medium for this, and I am thrilled to have nativity set! I have never had a glass nativity. It well suits the palette of my winter soul - white, ivory, gray, and limpid ice. I don't know who made this set. It is rather heavy for glass....Thank you, thank you!!!
