Made of 100% beeswax, this style of candle was originally referred to as a “Courting Candle” in the 1700’s. When a suitor would call on a young lady the lady’s father would feed a measure of beeswax coil candle through the self-extinguishing clip and light the candle. When the candle reached the clip and was extinguished it was time for the young man to go home! Each inch burns approximately 20 minutes. This candle will burn approximately 120 hours. Has a cotton wick with metal copper-tone stand. You get to decide where to attach the bees (comes with about 9 plastic bees). Made in Vietnam. 3 lbs; about 10 ½” tall x 7” Ø.
