The description says these are 8 cms tall (approximately 3.15 inches), but the Answer to the previous question says they are 8" tall, which is very tall for a tea light or votive candleholder. Would you please confirm the correct height?
These votives are just beautiful. They cast a warm amber light that makes the room just cozy. I have them on my mantle above my fireplace and with the both of them on it makes the room warm and inviting....

Story Behind the Art:
Made in the same workshop for the past 12 years. Mr. Mahmoud Abdel Nabi was born in the Egyptian countryside and moved to Cairo at an early age. Mr. Abdel Nabi has worked in the field of marble, alabaster and stone for most of his adult life. Alabaster products are manufactured by hand, using alabaster from every commercial quarry in Egypt. Alabaster is a natural, translucent marble which can vary in color from a clear lemon color to a rich shade of mango orange or even a very light cafe au lait.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

I purchased one of the Alabaster lamps featured on Overstock, and was so taken with it that I decided to try the candle holders. I recommend these, but.... My problem is that two of the four of these "Ramses" votives were of one size/quality, and the other two were of different size and quality. Two were larger, more polished, and featured matrix and variation that created a beautiful glow once lit by a tealight. The two smaller ones seem to have been made from an entirely different piece of alabaster -mostly a pale yellow, not as polished, and without any real matrix- also with a smaller, shorter baseat the bottom. Perhaps the lesser quality and smaller ones were made by a different craftsman altogether. Two of the four, however, are of the overall quality depicted in the photos. They are extremely beautiful when lit. I don't regret purchasing these (and am enjoying all 4 candle holders) but I do think Overstock needs to exert greater quality control regarding items made and sent from far-away countries. These did survive the journey and were well packed .( It was actually kind of fun to see they were wrapped with Middle Eastern newspaper! ) Overstock, by the way, never falters in its great customer support. Its not as hard to try something, knowing theyll take care of you if theres a problem.Read More
Before my purchase, I shopped on the net and found the value comparable to other places. I bought on a special shipping fee day, so I saved money with the shipping. At first, I considered them average, but after burning my first candle in them, the translucence was awesome. They all had their distinct pattern of color and direction. Very beautiful!!!Read More
the alabaser lights showed remarkable depth in the variations of the stone colors when lit with tealights.Read More
