These stylish candles were used around the
turn of the century when courting was still
fashionable. When the suitor would come
courting dad would light the candle. When
the candle burned down to the metal holder
courting time was over. If the young man
was rich and showed some promise dad
would raise the candle to give him more
time. If he was a shady looking character
dad would lower the candle and cut his
time in half.
