Light the night the same way people did in the 18th century. This antique-inspired black chamber candlestick holds a battery-operated candle in a black base with handle. Requires 4 AA batteries not included. 11 3/4"H x 4"W 

Candles were the primary source of lighting in Virginia homes in the 18th century. Candlemakers frequently went to some trouble to collect and refine the materials they used to make candles and soap. Candlemakers render tallow, refine and clean tallow and wax, and make candles by the processes of dipping and molding. Beeswax candles are most commonly made in warm weather. In cooler seasons, tallow and bayberry wax are used.

Beyond Expectations

by

These candles are lovely! I purchased four of them in black, and the quality is excellent. The oval base of the candle holder is protected by soft felt on the bottom and it keeps the candle secure from accidental tipping. The candle is molded to include the (not overdone!) illusion of wax dripping down the candle and the bulb has two tiny LED lights. It was easy to install the four AA batteries and screw in the bulb. The six hour timer remains on until another start time is desired. This is done by unscrewing the bulb then screwing it back in at the start time desired. The individual boxes are well designed to hold the candle securely for shipping and storage. Very happy with this purchase!
