Miniature 6” 1-Tube Tin Candle Mold w/ Loop Handle, 19th Century

A true Miniature 19th Century Tin Single-Tube Candle Mold. The 1 tube is 6" high and there is a 1 ½" square plate at the top, and an applied loop handle. The tube is tapered slightly with a pointed end with an opening for the wick to stick through; at the top it is ¾" in diameter. Solder construction. Very fine condition with no splits, cracks, breaks, etc. The piece has been varnished but retains a dark mellow patina. Some minor fritting on the edges of the top plate. Quite possibly, this mold was used to make small candles for use on Christmas trees, or in other decorative objects. These true miniature candle molds are rare and very desirable. One of several miniature candle molds listed in my Ruby Lane Shop.
