I have 2 wooden hand painted candleholders that are 10 1/2" high X 10" arm to arm. Does anyone have any idea what country they made be from and what are those holes on top of each arm..just decorative? Thanks for any help.

scandanavian?

Hmm...that's very possible. Will look that up. Thanks

Any idea why the holes on the arms? I checked scandanavian and sabaw one with a similar base.

I think they look scandinavian, as well.  Looking at pieces from the different countries in that area produced similar things, but nothing as "crisp" in the detail.  Those holes are driving me crazy, too.

The holes really don't add to it's "beauty" so to speak...weird.

It almost seems like the middle holder could lift up and you could fill them with oil, or something?  It would probably not be very safe, but they seems like would hold something...water?  For individual flowers?  I don't know.

It doesn't lift off.

Might they fit these kind of candles? https://www.yummicandles.com/products/9-inch-tiny-tapers-set-of-24?...

Called "Yummi". The only candlesticks I've seen like there were Polish, but who knows, without any markings, its tough to say.

Although the picture makes them look larger, the holes are about the size of a swizzle stick. So no candle would fit in them. Thanks for trying.

there are tiny little candles made

However, why?  They would be so close together...there is no drip tray below them...somehow it seems odd to me...even though I have no idea why else they would be there!

That's a good question. They look kind of weird on an otherwise nice candle holder.
