This is a hand carved wooden candle holder that comes with 3 pieces. It has a wooden base, the wooden turtle, and a yellow glass candle holder. This piece has been well used and appears to have been a favorite in the collection. There are no stickers or maker's marks on this piece.
The yellow glass candle holder is inserted into the shell of the tortoise, and will not come out, which makes me wonder how they got it in there. There is some wax drippage and the wax in the holder needs to be removed and replaced.
The wooden pieces are in good condition and no parts are broken. Set up as one piece, it is 5.5 inches long fron head to tail, 4 inches wide, and 4 inches tall. It weighs 1 lb, 0.6 oz.
There is a natural glossiness to the piece and the grain of the wood really stands out. It was obviously a favorite in the collection.
This candle holder is over 30 years old.
