Antique 12 Tube Tin Tapered Candle Mold With Handle
Product Description: In the earlier days before electricity, candles and oil lamps were a common household staple. This handsome tapered candle mold was hand-crafted with a rolled bottom base edge and top rim. What makes this collectible special is the soldered seams, soldered applied back handle and the perfect amount of natural, rich, surface patina. It was hand-crafted, bent to shape and soldered. This is a perfect example of an early candle mold that would look wonderful displayed with other primitives.
