Born in Sweden Stumpastaken - Small

Jonas Torstensson's Stumpastaken candleholder has become a Swedish design classic that graces many Scandinavian homes.

Made from 100% recycled aluminium, Stumpastaken Small is the dainty sequel to the classic Stumpastaken. It has nine holders, compared with the original Stumpastaken which holds 16 candles. 

Stumpastaken was originally designed to burn leftover stubs of candles - the aluminium will not catch fire when the candles burn down. It holds tealights, tall and short new candles, and Stumpstaken loves candles that drip!

To complement the small Stumpastaken, a cork storage box is available in natural and black cork, perfect for storing your candles.

Stumpastaken caretaking

Before the first use, place the protective felt pads supplied on the four outer pipes on the base of the candleholder. 

If you need to clean your Stumpastaken start by removing all of the loose wax with a plastic or wooden utensil without scratching the metal. Put the candlestick upside down on a baking tray covered in baking paper. Prop up with a couple of pieces of cork or wooden skewers to raise it up a few centimetres. Place in the oven for 15 minutes at 90-100 degrees. Do not use a gas oven.

The candle wax will flow out onto the paper. Wipe the candlestick with kitchen paper. Do not use water, as it may discolour the aluminium.
