c. 1900 Hand Forged Brass Wick Trimmer and Candle Snuffer Scissors


This weighty pair of solid brass wick trimmer/candle snuffer scissors were hand-forged around the turn of the century. They function perfectly well on a hinge feature which is also hand-forged. The pair are equipped with three separate brass pegs that are attached on each finger loop and the longer of the two blades. These feet ensure that excess wick trimmings and soot from the flames do not dirty your surface, and are an exceptionally convenient feature upon which the tool may rest when not in use. The scissors are a bright brass, and have the hallmarks of hand-forgery and artisanal making in the form of crosshatching and edging, making the item quite charming.

Pair with a purchase of one of Revival Studio Co.’s hand-poured 100% all natural soy wax candles that come in an antique or vintage glass vessel. Gift as part of a candle-making set, or add to your collection of eclectic brass snuffers. This combination trimmer and snuffer is just as lovely as it is useful.
