1810 Tallow Candle

I swipped this photo off of ebay. Have you ever seen a REAL tallow candle? This one was found in an 1810 candle box. It sold for about $75. It’s a simple thing, try but I loved seeing it and wanted to share it with you. I would love to own one, buy cialis but what are the chances that you will find one again. Not good, is my guess.

    Hey Carole,
    Lovely candle! While visiting Portland, Oregon, I came across a great store called American At Heart. Joan, the owner, sells these amazing candles made by Teresa Hilton, a candle-maker in Maine. Her candles are made to look like the old tallow ones; they are exquisite if you like primitive lighting and such. The candles do come on a wire, optional. And they cost $4.95 per candle. I have a large collection of early Americana/Canadiana including old lighting. I’ve hunted a good many years to find early looking candles and these are perfect!

    Hi!
    I work at Vintage Antiques & we have 8 of these tallow candles.
    They are very rare indeed.
