A small candle holder with a 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. This pewter candle-holder, enhanced by a convenient candle snuffer, clearly no long has the sole function of lighting a room; it is now also used to decorate the walls of your home in a simple and elegant way. However, it could take up its ancient function once again, allowing us to experience the type of atmosphere to which we are no longer accustomed, bringing a magical charm to the home.
