This is a very pretty candle snuffer. It is made of pewter metal and is marked CARSON 1994. The piece is done in an ornate design, with scalloped edges around the snuffer end and a celtic knot design on the handle which has an openwork heart at the end. You can use the heart shaped hole to hang up the piece for storage or display. The piece measures approx 7 3/4" long and 1 7/8" wide at snuffer end. Use with taper, pillar, votive, or tea light candles. Would make a pretty accent for a wedding or anniversary, or use as a decorative accent in the home. Not brand new, but in nice clean unused condition as shown in photo.
