This was a great Menorah and was sturdy, despite how thin it is! It's not too heavy but still feels strong. I love the removable candle holder parts, it made it easy to clean and put in the candles. The candles made by Via Maris fit perfectly in the Menorah, and didn't require any tin foil or melting the candles to make them fit better. They stood tall and strong and didn't lean or tilt. They also don't overly drip.
