Petronio Candle Snuffer - 7 cm Height - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
Extinguish your candles safely, cleanly and quickly with this classic handcrafted pewter conical candle extinguisher, made by artisans in Lombardy.
Candle snuffers were originally developed to remove the “candle snuffs”, the excess sooty threads of twisted flax, cotton or hemp, that were used on early tallow candles made from fat.
The term ‘snuffer’ has extended over the years to include extinguishers, which are placed over the candle to stop the air from supplying the flame, putting it out safely, but leaving the wick intact. These extinguishers can be any length, from very short ones, to very long ones used for putting out hard-to-reach and tall pillar candles, often used in stately homes and churches.
The Cosi Tabellini Petronio Candle Snuffer is a mini candle extinguisher, just 7 cm tall, and is of a conical shape with finger loop, based on an 18th Century Italian design. The pretty little tool complements the Cosi Tabellini range of candlesticks and candelabras.
