Is This Candle Holder The Grandfather Of Pixar's Iconic Desk Lamp?

Pixar refuses to consent to paternity tests, but it seems obvious this unique take on a decorative candelabra can claim the iconic Luxo desk lamp as one of its descendants.

Instead of featuring a bulb and reflector on the end of its spring-loaded articulated arm, this electricity-free light source has a decorative cup designed to hold and position a single candle. It brings a bit of nostalgic fun to your desk, although you’ll want to be careful about using it too close to your laptop — melted wax is tough stuff to get out of the cavities in modern electronics.

It’s just terribly sad that Suck UK is asking a ludicrous $US120 for it. For that much cash, you could buy a modern lamp, and just add on a nice candle holder… oh, forget it, this is fantastic, just take our money.
