The Mint "Abra" candelabra are a hand-blown glass candle holder. The classic candlestick holder is literally turned inside out, magically suspending a lit candle in mid air! The clever use of negative space will create positive reactions to all that see it. (Disclaimer: This is an illusion. There's no such thing as magic).
