Vastly superior to the run-of-the-mill copies found everywhere else! Our signature glass hurricane shades of shimmering, mouth-blown glass are surprisingly hefty. 

The smooth folded feet, testimony to the glassblower's skill, protect fine wood furniture from scratches, while the glass candle shades themselves protect candlelight from drafts and tabletops from dripping wax.

Hand-shaped from lead-free glass, our clear hurricane candle shades are eco-friendly!  Whether you select the 14-inch hurricane, or 17-inch hurricane, you can be sure the beauty of your favorite silver or brass candlesticks will shine through.

In the 18th century, "candle glasses" served as protective shields for open candle flames. Candles in colonial times were made of tallow, berries, or beeswax, and all of them puttered and guttered. Drafts increased the rate at which a candle burned, so the candle glass was as important for slowing the dripping as it was for keeping the candle lighted.

Love my hurricanes...

by

The 14" hurricanes, housing two Powell candlesticks and occasional candle rings, have had a home on my mantle for years, with seasonal changes around them varying from pussywillows to pine branches. I have never been known as a big spender and these are the most expensive things I have ever splurged on, but totally worth the happiness I get from them everyday. Substantial in weight, presence, and individuality.

Timeless classic

by

These are always on the Dining Room Table. It is simple elegance. The weight will not have the shades moving and marking the table. When you enter into the room your eye is drawn to the table and it makes a statement of timeless classic design. The glow of the lite candles shimmers thru the shades. You will enjoy them for a lifetime.
