Yes!  The pillar is hollow Frank.

The candle itself, internally,  down to the base is also hollow. 

it is pressed and pressing something like this requires a complicated mould and plunger.

With ref. to Christines comments above.  What is the plunger used for, is this what is used to create the hollow within the pillar?  ::).  I

I am more than grateful for the info. Christine.  I am currently reading up on them and the info. has most certainly been a benefit in understanding the technical side of how glass items are produced.   Thank you!

If Would like some pictures I'm happy to post some. :-)

Yes! that would be great if you could post some pictures.  I'm sure other GMB members will be interested to see them too.  Could you also include the dimensions, if that's not asking too much.  :)

Hi, thanks for the pics!   Paying attention to detail, I would not say they are identical though and I am finding it hard to find similarities.   Hopefully, someone on the GMB board will be able to verify this as I am no expert.  Is your candle holder, hollow all the way through and are there any visible joins as chritine has mentioned?  The base hole on mine is very sharp around the edges.  I have also noticed on the base a very small finger nail notch about 1.4cm away from the hole measuring 0.4cm in length, slightly curved and indented.  I know that on some of the murano pieces, you will find this type of a mark, but usually larger, but I have never known murano to put an embossed mark to their glass.
