The Bubble Glass with Candle Plate is one of our hottest new items. These vases are specifically designed to hold a candle plate in their middles so you can fill the bottom with your favorite decoration and display a candle above. The plate (Plate Included) is designed to hold a candle. If you are planning to display, or burn, a pillar candle in one of these pieces please consider that the plate is in the middle. The 8" vase is designed to be used with a votive in cup.
