This little square candle holder is 2" wide x 2 1/8" high (not counting the wire handle) and 1 1/2" deep (front to back). We know this is a ceramic candle holder because a sticker on the bottom has instructions and warnings about lighting the candle. There is no evidence that the holder ever included a candle. The image on the front of the holder is a little girl and her cat. The inscription says: Heaven gives us friends to bless the present moment. Previously owned but in good condition.
