    I saw one at a flea market one time and asked what it was (I couldn't imagine) and was told it was an antique crystal candle snuffer. I have no idea if that is right or not though. It was only $5.00 but I didn't buy it. Strange looking thing isn't it? I guess you extinguish taper candles with it ... maybe like a safety device to make sure its snuffed out?

    ok this REALLY depends on size and the way the photo was taken its hard to tell...AND mine is a remake from medieval times...but thought thru the years it could change once glass was invented and people had more money...a BODICE COOLER...and they are AWESOME!



    sorry no clue who the credit goes to...very old LO

    You are such a renaissance woman Jacque. That glass one looks to be the wrong shape ... it's not conical, and it's breakable. Could be tricky. I think the clay ones are more practical (I can't believe I'm saying that about something so odd, lol). Who knows maybe the first ones were made of bull horns and they kept them in the icebox.

    I still say candle snuffer, but bodice cooler is much sexier.

    LOL they clay ones r very breakable...i broke mine...i actually thought the glass one looked stronger. I got mine thru an SCA event (which is like renaissance to an outsider but we do NOT reenact we live and speak and FIGHT due to history with no scripts and everyone must dress the part) they actually make much more modern ones today...specifically for hot flashes. it was just a thought lol. the only reason i would think it was NOT a snuffer is it seems it would weigh too much and squish the wax and wick...but i have no clue LOL

    guess I'm a tad late
