A small candle holder with handle, which is also called a “bugia” in Italian. Some believe that the name “bugia”, which means “lie”, was given to candleholders because they hid the end part of the candle and therefore told a lie by not showing that the candle was used up. However the term ‘bugia’ actually derives from the name of the African town of Bidgiaya, which was then Italianised to Bugia, and which supplied most of the wax used for making candles. Our pewter candle holder, characterized by a simple design and enriched by understated and elegant engravings, blends with the furnishings of modern houses with simplicity and discretion, and with a charm that is timeless. Place your pewter candleholders on the table during an important dinner: the flame of the candles and the colour of the pewter will create an atmosphere that is different and charming.
