Old Fashioned Spiral Candlestick

This style of candlestick was used during colonial and Victorian times as a “courting” candle. When a young man came to “court” a young lady, the time the couple had together was determined by her father. Depending on how high, or low, he set the candle, their time together came to a conclusion once the wick was even with the top of the candlestick.

This courting style holder has a wide base for collecting wax and a strong handle for carrying. The candle height is adjusted by spinning the candle cradle up or down the spiraled center shaft.

Height: 10 inches
Candle NOT included
