VERY RARE, Very Early, ORIGINAL Antique Colonial TALLOW Candle c.1790, Made in Colonial Tin Candle Mold
D ESCRIPTION: Scans show it all.....an original, very nice, very early, c. 1780 - 1790 tallow candle, hand made in a colonial tin candle mold. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL COLONIAL ITEM AND NOT A MODERN ONE. It is made with early tallow, a farm waste substance that made excellent candles. It was melted for molding, then solidified in the tin mold as it cooled again. It is about 6" long x 7/8" diameter. Has the tapered top and the original full wick put in the mold before the liquid tallow. It has never been lighted, which is especially rare in such an early candle. THESE WERE HANDMADE BY AN EARLY NEW ENGLAND FARM WIFE. Looks very good for its age and has a nice patina and color and appearance. It is in mostly excellent antique condition overall. Has a little damage on one side (only), at the bottom end (only). Affects only about 1 1/2" at the very end, again only on the back side. Could be put in a candle holder so it doesn't show or displayed front forward, however desired, without this damage being visible. This is a very rare item after so many years, and would be a nice part of a variety of colonial collections or as a nice, very rare and unusual decorator.  In a favorite early candle holder or lamp or lantern to improve their appearance and authenticity, etc. Nice early item from a fine early Massachusetts estate, from my personal collection. Roughly 225+ YEARS OLD!!! Great original colonial decoration item for a mantle/shelf or in a kitchen display. Try and find another one!! PLEASE SEE ATTACHED PHOTOS!!!
