Product Instructions
Candle Shades & Candle Shade Carriers


Some metal shades fit on top of the brass carrier. All other shades should rest on the tapered part of the carrier in order to prevent the shade tilting and thus getting too near the candle flame.


1 - ALWAYS ensure that the candle holder has a hole which is deep enough to hold the candle vertical and secure.
2 - ALWAYS use the the correct candles. In particular with the ‘sit on’ carrier use straight sided 19mm diameter candles. We recommend candles with a minimum of 20% stearine paraffin wax. DO NOT use tapered candles. (Our recommended candles can be purchased here.)

3 - ALWAYS scoop out any hard wax from inside the carrier before re-use. NEVER twist to remove.
4 - NEVER let a candle burn below a minimum length of 100mm (4”) from the base of the candle. Should the carrier become stuck to the candle relight the stub of the candle and once the brass is heated through the carrier can easily be lifted off.
5 - CARD & FABRIC shades are NOT flameproof!
6 - MAXIMUM WATTAGE for conventional lamps is 25W for paper or card candle shades.
