Several years ago Martha Stewart Living magazine ran an article about these little treasures. 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 this adorable angel candle made by Gurley, and still bearing the original Gurley label. I have not seen this particular angel before. It is marked "Gurley Novelty Co., Buffalo, N.Y., U.S.A.”. This candle has never been lit. It stands about 3” tall. The candle is in very good condition.
