Courting Candle

These stylish candles were used around the turn of the century when courting was still fashionable. The story goes that when the suitor would come courting, dad would light the candle. When the candle burned down to the metal holder, it meant that courting time was over. If the young man was rich and showed some promise, dad would raise the candle to give him more time. If he was a shady looking character, dad would lower the candle and cut his time in half!

  • Each candle also  includes "The Story of the Courting Candle"
  • Approximately 6" high - Candle not included
  • Black wrought iron
  • Romantic ... a true conversation piece ... a wonderful gift ... a great souvenir!
