The Courting Candlestick was used by a young girl's father when her suitor came courting. When the candle burned down to the metal, courting time was over. If he liked a particular suitor, the father might set the candle on one of the higher rings, giving the couple a long visit in hopes that this fellow might become his son-in-law. If the young man wasn't a favorite, the candle would be set on a lower ring allowing just a short visit.
This lovely courting candlestick comes with a heart-shaped base. Would you have it any other way?
We send along a copy of the courting candle story with the candlestick.
