Coiled Beeswax Candle
In History. . .
The candle was developed in the 1600's. America had an abundance of beeswax, which they twisted into rope candles. These candles were called "courting candles." The courting candle became a parent''s way of timing how long a young gentleman suitor spend with their daughter. The burn time would be set by placing a cut into the candle.
The long rope went to the suitor of choice, while all other got the "short" rope. We took this concept and brought in into the 21st century by building a new design that with a patented clip that extinguishes the candle automatically.
- Antiqued metal.
- 80 hour burn time.

This candle is so unique and is a lovely addition to my room. As with everything I purchase from Victorian Trading Company....I could not be more thrilled!

This was so different looking that I wanted it for my Dining Room. I love the way it looks, but it was very difficult for me to pull the coil up through the clamp and difficult to keep the clamp open. I have to keep in mind that I am 71 years old and don't have the strength in my hands that I used to have. Look for forward to burning it.

The details on this candle make it perfect for all decors the unique metal clip, base and legs! I have it placed atop my grandmother's antique brass candlestand, where it looks fashionably vintage. Easy to use, and you control how much candle you wish to burn at one time. Wax molds easily in your warm hands. It is not scented, except for the lightest hint of honeycomb. I just love the light it casts, too! It's not a fragile piece either, but very sturdy and substantial. I'm certain I will be buying refills of this pretty candle, which luckily, VTC also sells!

I love this! It sits atop an old 1930's radio and is a great conversation piece. I haven't lit it yet, but I just know it will be wonderful to watch. I also like that refill candles are available. Great item!

A beautiful, unique candle I purchased for a gift. This candle is a curiosity of its' own. It is lightweight. The clamp is moveable so you can predetermine just how many hours you wish to burn your candle. The wax is made from one of Nature's most valuable insects. I loved giving this gift and the person who received it also loved receiving it. I will probably purchase this item for myself as well.
