Candle lamp Visually a stand-alone lamp without wiring, actually a candle with a surrounded shade which runs down synchronously by a metal hook, which is piercing in the top of the candle. Useful for restaurants, bars, or the home environment. The light intensity is reduced to a mood light suitable for restaurant tables; you’re not looking into the light. Less of a fluttering flame, and people are less attempted to play with the suet.
