As other purchasers have noted, this item is a beautiful, heavy weight t-light holder that is even more lovely engraved with flowing script. I wanted something memorable for an anniversary but nothing that would take up a lot of space or intrude on the recipients' decor. This is perfect. You can turn the script side to the back if you don't want the words evident. It's very heavy and shiny. I am proud to give this as a 20th anniversary gift.
