Old Fashioned Candle Snuffer on Tray

$ 24.99

The scissor-like tool could be used to trim the wick of a candle. With skill, this could be done without extinguishing the flame. A small receptacle catches the trimmed bit of wick. This tool was rendered obsolete by the invention of self-snuffing wicks, which curl out of the flame when charred. This allows excess wick to burn away, preventing the wick from becoming too long.
  • Suffer/trimmer measures 8.5 inches
  • Rests on a matching tray
  • Lovely old world elegance
