GLASS and CRYSTAL BOBECHESbobeche
 

 

A bobeche, pronounced boh-besh, is a collar or cup under a candle or candle socket which often holds glass prisms below. Chandeliers and candelabras are the most common type of lighting that prolifically use bobeches. In colonial America, long before chandeliers were electric, they were candle-powered. The bobeches under candles were originally designed to protect the lamp itself from melting wax. This design of a bobeche under each candle socket was carried over with the advent of electricity. and even today, they are often designed to slip on and off to clean.
