Courting Candle Holder

The wrought iron Courting Candle Holder captures a true piece of history with its original colonial design and function. Features a hand twisted base, distressed wooden cork, hand pounded drip pan and original courting candle holder style.

Short history of the Courting Candle Holder: In colonial times a young man could come visit with his young lady for as long as it took the courting candle to burn down to the first coil. Traditionally the candle height was adjusted by the father of the lady in question. He would move the candle up or down the coil with a small wooden cork adjusting the amount of time the young man could stay, higher if he liked the young man or lower if he didn't. Read the full history of the courting candle holder here.

well made product August 8, 2016
Reviewer: Patty Adkins from Gahanna, OH United States  
The candle holders were exactly as expected. Order took over two months to arrive. Website not easy to navigate. I called timeless wrought iron twice to inquire about product but calls were never returned.

Love the Courting Candle June 19, 2014
Reviewer: Pattie from Huntington Station, NY United States  
I ordered this for my husband for his first fathers day.  I thought it was appropriate since we have a daughter.  And I LOVE it.  So did he (since he knew what it was, many may not).  It was sturdy, not flimsy at all, very well made, and you can tell it is hand crafted. I ordered the gun metal finish, very nice.  Delivery was about 3 weeks, quicker than listed.  I would highly recommend.

Unique Gift December 21, 2011
Reviewer: Carol Berg from Chanhassen, MN United States  
The "Courting Candle" is a marvelous gift--especially for the fifth anniversary (iron or candy).  Its unique spot in American history made it such fun to give to our daughter and her husband.  They appreciated the craftsmanship and the story.  Once the gift had been created, its shipment was completed within a few days.  I would recommend this to someone who is looking for something different to give.
