I purchased (two of) these to go with my 'modern house' with primitive accents, especially for Christmas. I like the combination of the looks. I don't use a lot of candles, but these looked better than most, so I thought I'd give them a try. I'm not disappointed. The base has a nice traditional look with some scuffing on the paint to make it look used, a nice touch. As expected, the base fits the candle sleeves exactly, making the setup quite easy. As noted in description, the base plugs into a wall socket and has a switch in the cord making operation easy. The light is way too bright for my taste, so I have the candle on a dimmer, which also lowers the color temperature to a nicer yellow-orange glow, and gives it a much more candle-like appearance.
What few candles I have though, I've switched to flicker LED style. As such, I'll probably convert these to flickering LEDs by kit-bashing the base, removing the electric stem and putting in one of those 5/19 (five hours on/19 hours off) flicker LED candles on the base. Maybe they'll offer this as an option in the future.
In any case, these candles look great and are easy to set up and operation. Definitely recommend.AB
