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.

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.

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!

I have wanted one of these candles for years and was able to finally get this one and I absolutely love it. It’s stiff at first but using the heat from my hand the wax softened just enough to get it through the clamp and I love that it puts itself out.

I love the candle. I thought it would be larger for the price! But it burns great and it is awesome.

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!
