Candle Snuffer Vintage Surprise

(1 customer review)

CAD $25.00

Candle snuffers date from the 17-mid 19th centuries. Many complex forms of snuffers evolved for the homes with many candles. Some had concentric trap-doors that would snap shut and isolate the sniff. Other’s would stow the snuff in a lower cavity in the scissors. Similar devices include the douter, and the extinguisher.

I have quite the collection of these beautiful pieces & to keep it interesting I thought we could lower the price & I would send you a random one. Then I don’t have to keep taking pictures and you get a surprise! All of them have a beautiful patina you can polish & clean if you wish, personally I think it adds character. <3

One random vintage brass or silver candle snuffer, if you would prefer one colour over the other please leave a note in the checkout area and I will do my best to make that happen!
