This small candle holder is crafted from tin with hand punched designs. It is Jason's great, great grandfather, Francisco Delgado's design. Jason's signature is etched in the bottom. The candle holder is fairly uniform. The photo represents a general style for the punched work. If you order multiples, they will match. The candle is not included.
