This is a decorative handmade candleholder plate made with fused glass. On the edges are green opaque stripes, next to clear glass stripes. The main portion of the plate is a dark blue glass. This plate is 7 inches square, and weighs approximately 10 ounces (less than 1 pound). The bottom is flat, and the edges of the plate curl up about 1/2 inch, enabling it to be used as a candle holder. A candle no larger across than 5 inches should be used. You can also use tea lights, votives and small pillar candles. This decorative plate is foodsafe, but it is NOT dishwasher safe. Additionally, DO NOT put in the oven or microwave. A note about glass - fused art glass may have minor bubbles and or ripples - this is a part of the process of melting glass and adds to the individuality and beauty of each piece. Remember anything made of glass will break if dropped on a hard surface.
