This moon and stars tagine tea light lantern is a beautiful little bit of Morocco that will fill your home with gentle light. These mini lanterns will suit any home and the gentle light will shine upwards onto your ceilings. Made from tiny pots like the ones that food is made in, these mini tagine pots have the cute moon and stars cut into the lids. These lanterns can be used with tea lights and also small wired lights.
This little candle holder (ideal for a tea light) is made in Tamegroute, a village on the edge of the Sahara desert about 7 hours from Marrakech. The characteristic colour comes from the minerals found in the river beds of the Draa Valley. The manganese and copper give the pieces their colour. These pieces came from the cooperative that supports many of the families in the village.
We found these pretty tea light holders on our recent trip up through the Atlas Mountains and into the Sahara.
Please note that each one is different as they are all handmade and the glaze differs from one to another.
