|Object Name||Mold, Candle|
Tin tubular candle mold which can make up to 6 candles. Square base at both ends of mold. Appears to make taper-type candles.
From The Catalog of American Antiques: "Candle molds were also employed, both by the homemaker and by itinerant candlemakers. These molds, of tin, pewter, or pottery, were set in a frame accommodating any number from a single stick to eight dozen. Wicks were inserted into the individual tubes,and boiling tallow was poured in; when it cooled, the finished candles were removed."
