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.
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.

These are beautiful and unique candle holders. Pop a tea light in them and they just glow. Very heavy and well worth the money. May need to place felt under them to prevent scratching furniture.Read More

Ordered product for our 37th anniversary gift. Very nice candle holders. Enjoy!!Read More
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!Read More
I love the way light filters through the albaster votives, I grouped them together, and placed them on the alabaster plate I had ordered, Nice! Fast shipping, great customer service!Read More
