Strange one..maybe a prototype!Things fit together fine but kind of wonky. :o The glass doesn't seem to have anything to hold it in place at the top.(REVISION:Now that I looked closer..it has a couple bumps to hold the glass up on the bottom edge...just can slide past the bumps with a little friction)The top twists off with only one catch instead of two..same as the bottom...I don't really think this was a production model with the weird things...?????No name but is imprinted with MADE IN USA... :DB: ....Pretty cool you can take the bail off,rotate the inside 180 degrees and put the bail back in..making everything inside protected!Takes a wimpier candle..got a nice leaning pink one for RR! ... :lol:
