This was one of 21 candleholders which I Carved for my daughter’s wedding.
The complete quotation carved around the base is the Billy Connelly one: “Never trust a man who, when left alone with a tea cozy, doesn’t try it on”
The candle holder is one of these vintage miniature resin teapot collectables favoured by gentile old ladies. The tartan jacket which took for ever to complete is intentionally a bit over the top reflecting the wearers character.
