Made from English fine bone china, these egg shape candle holders are lovely and modern. They are sold in pair, one medium and one large egg, nicely packaged in a recycled board gift box.
UK artist Michelle Mason designed her latest creations so you can watch the wax drip like egg yolk. It is a fact that the British people like to eat soft-boiled eggs on the morning.
I like the romantic idea but not the wax stain on my tablecloth. If you are like me, you got two choices:
- Buy no dripping candles but you lose the concept
- Rest the pair of egg candle holders on a tray or a wood board
I prefer the second option.
Decorating your home at Easter or for a brunch
Better yet, a single tulip or a branch fits into the hole. So get a few pairs. Mix and match candles, empty eggs and plants to create a dramatic effect in your home.
Having small vases like those is practical because you can easily move them around to suit your mood and spatial needs. These would look amazing for a brunch. Imagine them at a key element of your Easter tablescape.
Customers outside UK should order the Michelle Mason products from Hidden Art Shop since these accept International orders. Several retailers across UK carry some or all products by Michelle Mason, look at her Web site to locate shops.

Michelle Mason . . thanks for giving us ideas. dripping candles are great for my centerpiece but i think of just using real eggs instead and put sand inside for filler . i need just to flatten the bottom to keep the eggs from tripping over.. . why should i wait for easter(it’s a long wait} if i can enjoy the “dripping candles” everyday? GOD BLESS and MORE POWER TO YOU.
