Black Lantern Candle by the Hour
Enhance the atmosphere in your home with this handsome Black Lantern Candle by the Hour. Featuring an old-fashioned oil lamp design in black metal, this novel candle automatically extinguishes after up to one hour for your convenience and peace of mind. Simply feed up to 3" of the pliable eco-friendly beeswax coil through the clip and light the wick to enjoy natural candlelight, without the worry. The entire lantern rope candle will last for roughly 40 hours of burn time.
This unique type of candle was developed in the 1600’s, when America had an abundance of beeswax, and they were also called “courting candles.” The courting candle became a parent’s way of timing how long a young gentleman suitor spent with their daughter. Use it that way if you like, but we think this beeswax rope candle is just a delightful holiday decoration for any table or mantel.
