    • Dimensions: 4 inches high x 4 inches in diameter

    Story Behind the Art:
    All of these oriental alabaster products are made by the same workshop for the past 12 years. The artisan is Mr. Mahmoud Abdel Nabi, who was born in the Egyptian countryside, but who moved to Cairo and grew up there from an early age. Mr. Abdel Nabi has worked in the field of marble, alabaster and stone for most of his adult life. Oriental alabaster is a translucent marble found only in Egypt. It is thought the ancient city of Alabastros, gave alabaster is moniker. The ancient Pharaohs utilized this marble in many aspects of their daily lives and religious ceremonies. Its use in Egypt has been carried down to the present day. Of course, giving work to people is called 'opening homes', in Egypt. To be able to help people by giving them work, is not only a responsibility, but a pleasure.

  • Beautiful!

    These arrived in perfect condition and (guess I wasn't thinking) far heavier and more substantial than I was originally thinking! They are gorgeous with the right size light in them, with a beautiful amber glow through the nuances of the alabaster! For the reviewer who was disappointed in the lack of amber light/color from hers, change the light/candle that you are using. If you use a smaller, quality tealight (so that the light is low in the vessel) I think you'll get the amber glow that you are looking for!

  • votive holders

    beautiful...a little different coloring then on the picture but that can be expected since the alabaster can be taken from different areas. One was cracked upon arrival but quickly replaced!! Good customer service!

  • Breathtaking!!

    So worth the money. Arrived quickly and NOT broken as others have stated. They were packaged very well. Each votive has unique markings that make these just beautiful when burning. I will be purchasing the big votive next. It's so neat that a artisan in Egypt has hand carved these pieces and that my purchase supports his business and his wonderful gift of stone carving.

  • Arrived Broken!

    I ordered it for mothers day present. It was mailed to Texas. Luckily, my father opened it and said it was broken and inside the box the packaging was awful. It is being returned. I saw more reviews like this, but I ordered anyway. I will keep looking for a gift.
