La Rochere - Dragonfly Tealight HolderLa Rochere - Dragonfly Tealight Holder
This gorgeous La Rochere, glass tealight holder partners perfectly with a Queen B pure beeswax candle.

In 2010, Queen B discovered the La Rochere bee range of glassware and fell in love!  I'm sure you will agree that for this quality of glassware, which continues to be made in France, their prices are extraordinarily reasonable.
