Our beautiful wax friendship candle lantern. As they are lit from the inside using a tealight (there is no wick) they keep forever, hence the name 'forever candles'. These lanterns are 10 cm wide by approximately 15 cm high.
Front of lantern reads:
A little light to thank you for being my friend.
Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.
Poem on the back reads:
But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort - the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person - having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859
