The courting candle became a parent's way of timing how long a young gentleman suitor spent 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 others got the short rope.
Three inches of the candle will burn for approximately one hour. Self-extinguishes when the flame reaches the clip.
