While "Lucia" wears a crown of candles or lights, her attendants in the Lucia Procession carry a single candle. This battery-operated candle is safer for young girls than a real, lit candle. The candle uses one size AA battery, not included. 4.5" battery-operated candle on a handle, with bulb; 7" overall. Uses the same 1.5 volt, 3 watt replacement bulbs (item #2596) as the Lucia Crown.
