19th c. Candle Dipper

19th c. Candle Dipper

An unusual 19th c. candle dipper in original surface.

An unusual yet functional form used for production of home made candles. Constructed from two boards of oak wood and joined in a mortise and tenon joint and secured with a small pin. The handle is shaped circular accommodating its handled use and tapers to flat angles meeting the body. A series of holes pierces the horizontal board for stringing candles to be dipped and retains 4 old remnants still attached and covered in wax.

Quality surface characteristics are present with historic coloring and signs of burning from use. Excellent condition.

New England. Ca. 1830-1880. 19 1/2"W x 10 1/2"T.
