Christopher Pinchbeck the Younger patented the Candle Snuffer in 1776, patent #1119. In those days the snuffer was basically a scissors with an attached compartment to collect the trimmed wick. When tallow candles gave way to beeswax regular trimming of the wick was no longer necessary and the design of Candle Snuffers (now technically, Candle Extinguishers) evolved in to what we are now familiar with.

The bowl section of this candle snuffer is first press moulded, using a plaster mould formed using a barnacle shell, before being fettled and sculpted to accomodate the copper alloy handle which terminates in a modelled earthenware adornment.

Length 30cm. Approx.

Customers should remember that as all products are handmade there will always be slight differences in size and glaze finish, no two items will ever be identical.

Where more than one of any product is available to purchase the displayed image may not always be an identical representation of the original design.  In such a case I will always provide images of the particular item purchased prior to shipping, if required.
