Not Bad, Candles Are Okay
By Barn of Bigfoots
About Me Classic
Comments about Spirit Halloween Skull Gothic Candelabra:
I love the look of this and it really fits with Halloween for indoor decor or haunts. Good weight and construction. I would have given 5 stars but the candles that came with it are constructed poorly and on one the cap keeps cross threading not allowing the candle to complete the battery circuit and it will not light up.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Nice Haunted House Look
About Me Midrange Shopper
Really nice weight and look for the base. Perfect for a haunted house setting. Candle battery mechanism is not good and sometimes can't be unscrewed to replace batteries without breaking it. Needs a redesign on that.
Very nice item! Good weight and love you can use real candles also. The candles it comes with are battery operated and flicker like real candles. Great spooky touch to any decor.
Too bad only available online

I have kept the décor out all year long. Looks completely real!

I got this to add to my collection of candelabras in this series. I was able to hang it with monofilament to make it 'float' over a séance table. Looked great!
I really like these candleholders. One of the candles is a little crooked on the bottom and doesn't stand up as straight as the others but it still looks great in my window. I'll probably pick up some more next year.

This candelabra feels well built. The candles look great at night and will look great on Halloween night

I use it for background lighting.(listening to the radio...etc)Goes with nearly any decor, easy to move around, easy to keep dusted and does not use electricity.Can not find anything that is not good about it.

About Me Budget Shopper
i got the candelabra in the mail, and it's beautiful and the base is sturdy and heavy. one of the best looking decorations i have and a great scene setter. however, it's powered by batteries you twist into the plastic candles which are each separate from the base, and the twist top that holds them in is rather difficult to get in the right position to get them to light. the candles can also fall out of the base easily which makes it dainty.it's still a great decoration though, higher quality than most spirit decorations. if you want something to put in a haunted porch/garage/etc, this is risky because the candles fall over/out if someone bumps into the table its sitting on (from personal experience). good for home decor.
Great Effect, poor design
from Atlanta, GA
This is a 5 star item except for the plastic cap for the batteries. We have purchased 10 candelabras and 4 single hand held candles as well as 1 pack of spare candles. Over a total of 37 individual candles, almost a third were defective. The problem is the threads of the candle/cap are stripped or the diameters are off causing the cap to pop off or not thread properly when you try to turn the candle off or change batteries. Spirit was very good about replacing the candles, but they need to correct the design.Beside that they are very realistic and the battery life is at least 2 weeks before they even seem dimmer when used every night. If you are planning to purchase, order more than you need so you can return the defective ones.
looks great but fragile!
from baltimore, md
looks great, but fragile. fell of a table 3 feet onto padded carpet and broke into 3 pieces :( we love the way it looks but wish it was made of metal.
By A Dying Star
Went perfect with my halloween party! It's durable and has a great look to it. I've seen many other ones but this one was the best to me.
from San Diego, CA
I bought this 3-prong candelabra Halloween 2011 and it was such a great purchase! We bought it for our entryway window and the neighborhood LOVED it! As soon as the sun set, we turned it on. The flickering fake candles look VERY realistic! Some neighbors thought they were real candles. Battery life on this thing is great! Accidentally left it on all night and the next morning they were still flickering strong. It was worth EVERY penny! We highly recommend!!!
Looked GREAT on our Candy table..
from Sanford, Florida
We used this on our candy table with year, two of the three candles were broken, so we used real candles.. Which made it look GREAT! The only con I have found is the price of the replacement candles, and the fact that they do not look like what comes with it.. Even with that, we loved this item and plan on buying another one so we have a set.
Very cool looking
from Orlando, Fl
Great addition to my halloween party decor this year! I love the look in my " Silence of the Lambs" dining room scene. Very disappointed one had a defective candle and customer service has yet to.send me a replacement two weeks later.

About Me Adventurous, Classic, Conservative, Trendy
Love this item, I almost passed it up on internet and catalog, if it wasn't for a store near me. (Piqua, OH Luckly they weren't sold out. Although I hope they put one in my town next year.) I was able to see it, hold it! That's what convience me and why I prefer to shop at the place, then thru a catalog or internet. To be able to actually see, feel, the item. That clinched it for me! HAD TO HAVE IT! And the price was great. I'm one of those ALWAY'S looking for a good NO, GREAT DEAL especially in today's economy! Two "disfigured" thumbs up! Next year I hope to buy the 5 Tier one. I don't mind the AAA batteris it takes, I just hope the bulb holds out, it looks irreplaciable, which is the only minus.
The perfect holder!

About Me Artistic
This piece is great to help create that gothic look. Works if you are creating a castle or haunted manor. It is a bit too fancy for a haunted trail park. The candles look real, and will fool your guests.

If you're thinking of buying this, do it! Don't hesitate at the price, it's gorgeous and you won't be disappointed. This is not some cheap, plastic, flimsy candelabra. It's sturdy and even better looking in person. Do it! Buy it!
