For your consideration is a 4 pc set of Santa Claus Novelty Candles in the original box marked: Tavern Novelty Candles, No. 797--4 Small Santas, Socony-Vacuum Oil Company, Inc., with the red Pegasus mark on the label. on top of the box. The box is approximately: 3 1/4"T X 4 1/8"Sq. The candles have never been used, however, they have slightly melted from the heat & age through all the years that they may have set in a garage, basement or attic. Each candle has the original paper label attached on the bottom, also. The colors are still vibrant, as is the shapes of the Santa Clauses. Tavern candles were made during the early 1900's and were hired by the Oil Companies to use some of the wax that they had from the machinery or production of the oil to make these novelty candles. Later on, The makers of the candles moved on on their own and renamed the company "Gurley." Each candle is approximately: 3"T.
CONDITION: The box is well attached at all corner, but does show a little bit of scuffed corners and light fading on the red coloring. Each candle is in very good, condition, however, one candle does not stand up very well, but will, and 2 others have some tissue paper attached to one side of the boots. All flaws are very minor and only mentioned for accuracy! Otherwise, in very good, vintage & collectible condition. (Price quoted is for the box & all 4 candles together!)
