Round Alabaster Votives
Please join the wait list for this product.
Artisans in Egypt use alabaster hewn from mountains in the Luxor area to hand craft these creamy-hued votives. Sculpting chunks of multi-hued alabaster into perfectly smooth votives is a painstaking, multi-step process. The cutting is done gradually over several days to ensure the fine crystals in the stone don’t break, and pieces are glued and wrapped in cotton at night to “rest”.
Lit from within alabaster glows with soft, diffused, creamy light, unique to the stone. Variations in the stone make each candleholder truly one of a kind.
Sold as a pair.
Use with our Tea Light Candles by Greentree Home.
Note: Intended for use as a candle holder only. Does not hold water.
10 years ago, Danish native Malou Lenskjold visited her cousins Ellen and Henrik Raven who lived in the Siwa Oasis in the Sahara Desert. Inspired by local handcrafts and materials in the region, Malou, Ellen, and Henrik launched their family-based company, Sirocco in 2010 and introduced Egyptian made products to the Danish market. Working with local artisans, Sirocco designs and creates a wide range of furniture and accessories from natural materials including salt, alabaster, copper, stone, wool, and cotton. All products are made using ancient handcrafting traditions that have been handed down from generation-to-generation.
Material: Egyptian alabaster
Care: The base of these candleholders may become hot; we recommend adding a small layer of coarse salt or sand under the candle or use flameless LED candles. If using wax candles, be sure to keep the wick trimmed and the flame low.
Not for outdoor use, even in covered areas. Alabaster should never come in contact with water as it can ruin its smooth finish and color. Dust with soft, dry cloth. To remove surface stains and grime, carefully use a soft cloth lightly moistened with mineral spirits or acetone.
Dimensions: 2.3”H x 2.3"D

Love these Little Beauties
These votives give off a beautiful soft light, perfect for the dinner table.
Great Customer Service
The votives are as beautiful hoped they would be. My order had a problem in that only one of the pair originally sent. When I contacted customer support, they promptly sent me the missing votive, but then a second pair showed up a few days later at no charge to me. A class act.
These are beautiful and look so pretty on the side of my soaking tub. They add a very pretty calming, glow to the bathroom.
They are so pretty that I bought two pairs, such a beautiful glow when the candles are lit!
These alabaster votives are every bit as beautiful in person as they appear online. They cast a warm, soft glow with lit tealights - I love them so much that I am planning to purchase the larger sizes to round out my collection. Well made, safely shipped by Bloomist, and I highly recommend.
Nice but absolutely tiny
Nice but Very tiny. I had impression it was much bigger than it is. Barely holds a votive. Also expensive! Given something so tiny.
