Our 25 inch tall aluminum candlestick can be used for both tapers and pillar candles. There is a 5 inch diameter inset for pillars and also a hole to use with a taper candle instead. The shiny finish looks gorgeous as it reflects the candle light onto surrounding surfaces. This holder has a really wide base making it very stable so even our tallest tapers and pillars can be supported securely. The top of the holder is over 6 inches across so even our wide 3 wick pillar candles can be used with this holder. This larger candle holder can be set on the floor to create elegant entrance ways to your home or events.
