Interesting Fairy Lamp Bases .... or not?

These are definitely ornate and interesting! I'm not certain that they are intended to be fairy lamp stands ... what do you think?

Thanks,

I donít feel that these were designed to be fairy lamp bases originally. The top has a inside diameter of 3 1/8Ē which could fit a candle cup, however, they are not deep enough to set a candle cup into.
The other idea would be to use a shade without a candle cup. This would work as the average shade is about 3 1/8Ē in diameter, however, then the candle would sit right on the metal base, and there is no indentation to hold a candle. If you tried to move them while lit, the wax could also spill out between the metal pieces.
I donít know what they were originally used for, but they sure would look great as pillar candle holders.

I think you are right as the base in the opening threw me off. Thanks for the response! Very Happy
