    Handcrafted with rich, oriental alabaster, a beautiful, translucent marble found only in Egypt, this unique candleholder will add a touch of exotic style to your decor.

    Our Globe-shaped votive containers are perfect for holding your tea light or small votive candle. Ancient pharaohs prized fine objects rendered in alabaster, deeming them indispensable on earth and in the afterlife. Alabaster votive oil lamps often adorned their homes and elegant, elaborate tombs.

    Adorn your home with this wonderful accessory at our special online price.


    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.

    What is Worldstock?

    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. Each piece will be unique and variation from the photo should not be considered a flaw.

    Measurements may vary slightly.

      This alabaster globe is very nice! It has good weight to it and glows beautifully! I was expecting for the orange and gray but this is more orange and white. I know it depends on the alabaster so I am not taking off a star because it is so pretty! I would recommend!

    • A beautiful and unique gift
      Verified Purchase

      I bought this product because I was trying to replace a vary rare find that someone had bought us as a gift (they had purchased it along side the Nile themselves). We unfortunately had broken the initial candle holder ...so we wanted to find one to replace it. Our purchase had to live up to very high expectations. The candle that we purchased from Overstock.com was indeed very beautiful and the craftmanship was probably a bit higher quality than the one we were gifted previously. It had thicker stone walls and was flattened on the bottom (probably better for us, since it's more sturdy and wouldn't get knocked as easily). The stone of the globe was also more polished than we expected. It is a very beautiful piece. Since the stone was a bit thicker, it takes a bit of a larger candle (a votive rather than a tealight) to get it glowing properly, but it is a lovely when it is lite up. I think our only disapointment is that there could've been clearer description of the piece online (exact size measurements, weight etc.). These things were really important to us really only because we were trying to find something to replace something that was very precious...(the other globe we were trying to replace was much larger). The service and shipping was quick and it was packed really well for transport, so all in all, I would recommend this product. It is a very beautiful and unique gift.

    • Just Beautiful!
      Verified Purchase

      This product was exactly as described. It is very well made. Heavy, genuine material, really made my mom feel like egyptian royalty for having it as a mothers day gift! It was a little pricey but well worth it. The light that illuminates from it when placing a candle inside creates an ambiance that I have never seen before. A truly unique and beautiful work of art!

      These votives are much bigger than the picture and are beautiful with their colors. I would recommend two for balance but alone they are fine. I use them for my dining table when i host a dinner party and all comment on their beauty.

      This is a beautiful piece! It is heavy and thick and takes on a completely different appearance when a tea light is placed inside. I plan to order one for myself.

      I have bought three of these globe votives. They are beautiful and give off a soft, warm, glow when lit. I have also given them for gifts. However, the last globe I bought was cracked and I have now have the hassle of returning it. I have one in my office and keep a candle lit in it all the time. I have received many, many compliments. I would have given it 5 Plus stars if the last votive hadn't arrived cracked.

        Hi Monica, These are much bigger than I thought but absolutely beautiful. I believe these are the biggest ones offered. I brought two for balance but could be used as individuals. Hope this helped.
