Ivory Resin Candle Coverslooks like real beeswax. Wax drips and faux finish resemble an aged candle. Ivory color blends with many sconces, hanging lamps, chandeliers and lamps.
These resin candle covers are made of thick poly beeswax. This material is sturdy and durable. But best of all, it is washable and will retain its shape and color. Cut with a bandsaw if shorter height needed.
These candle covers are heat resistant. Use with up to a 60-watt bulb provided the candle cover fits correctly and the candle cover is not enclosed within a shade. If enclosed within a shade use a 25-watt bulb.
Install Resin Candle Cover
Slide resin candle covers over candelabra candle socket with cardboard insulator.
Correct height is important. Once in place the top of the candle cover should be level with the top of the socket or insulator. If it is taller than it may melt or be scorched.
Candle covers are not to be used as a socket insulator.
Before making any changes to electrical fixtures and/or lamps:
Disconnect plug/wire from the electrical source.
Turning lamp off will not protect you from electric shock.
If you are unsure how to safely proceed contact a licensed electrician.
They are exactly the size, color and style needed. Love them.
Smart and Classy Upgrade for Vintage, Reflector (Mogul) Floor Lamps
Fill a ceiling with recessed cans and LED strip lights, nothing warmly lights up an entire room like the three-arm, reflector floor lamps. I was hooked on the mogul floor lamp as a kid, when my grandmother would switch on the lighted marble base as a night light...which is why I had THREE of them to spruce up and repair. Two of my three moguls had kraft paper, yes, paper covers around the wiring of the three "candles". The third had polystyrene covers, disconcertingly melted around the top where incandescent bulbs had produced too much heat. The solution? Better living through modern chemistry...Paxton offered heat-resistant, resin candle covers. No more melted polystyrene or crumbling kraft-paper tubes. These are certainly not the cheapest candle covers, but they're undoubtedly the smartest, most historically appropriate, and best looking covers. Thanks, Paxton:)
Just like original
Inherited my Great Grandmother's floor lamp that has been passed down through the family. It was truly in bad shape and headed towards the dump. It had brittle wiring, gobs of epoxy resin throughout, and badly stained paper candle covers. My memory held images of more authentic looking covers with the wax drips. Old family pictures with the lamp in the older years verified this. The candles are sturdy and authentic looking and do not hold on to dust and dirt. The only problem I had with the installation was that on this particular floor lamp, they were slightly too tall to make the connection when screwing in the flame light bulb. Mostly the fault of redesigning of the bulb itself. This problem was easily resolved by adding a threaded nut or washer to the nipple where the candle socket attaches adding the needed height to provide ample spacing for the bulb to sit in correctly. Would definitely recommend these over paper covers any day. Something as simple as a candle cover can make or break your floor lamp in appearance and quality.
