These colored wax spiral Christmas candles were used to light Christmas trees until the early 1900s before electric Christmas lights came into common use, used with small tin candle holders that clipped onto the branches. Of course having actual fire on the tree was quite dangerous.
There are 21 candles in the box, there is no printed quantity on the box to indicate how many there were originally. The candles are all unlit, about 3-1/2 to 3-3/4 inches high, in shades of pink, red, green, yellow, peach, and white or ivory. There is some color shading as shown, either from dye transfer or fading. Some are a little warped from heat exposure during storage, nothing serious. The holly decorated box has no manufacturer information, just "Improved Dripless Christmas Candles" but I presume they're American made. The box is intact with no tears but does have discoloration from age and storage.
