In the 18th century, "candle glasses" served as protective shields for open candle flames. Candles in colonial times were made of tallow, berries, or beeswax, and all of them puttered and guttered. Drafts increased the rate at which a candle burned, so the candle glass was as important for slowing the dripping as it was for keeping the candle lighted.
