Several years ago Martha Stewart Living magazine ran an article about these little treasures. It stated that festive figural candles were mass-produced after World War II and sold across America in five-and-dime stores. Collected and saved for decoration to impart cheer season after season, they were rarely lit. Some of the most desirable figural candles came from the now-defunct Gurley Novelty Company of Buffalo, New York, owned by chemist Franklin C. Gurley Sr., whose assembly lines rolled out thousands of santas and snowmen. I was so excited to find these three candles; two Easter bunnies and one baby chick, all three with their original labels. These candles have never been lit. The bunnies stand about 3 1/2" tall and the baby chick about 3" tall. They are in good condition with light wear to the paint. Shipping will be discounted on multiple orders.
