I just received my order today and am pleasantly surprised and delighted with these. They are either real brass or a good imitation thereof. They are solid and sturdy, heavy, quality feeling, not thin and stamped out (which to be honest, is what I was expecting). They are just the right size to perfectly hold the little chime candles I ordered a month or so ago. They actually complement the Revere Chamberstick taper candleholders I bought about 40 years ago for over $100 each. If you want something that gives you good, solid quality for the price, these are one purchase that you won't regret.
