Silverplate Candle Snuffer Scissors, Stamped

Snuffers were first invented to cut off and retain the burnt wicks when the wax around them has melte ; they were not necessarily used to extinguish the candle's flame. The point at the end was for retrieving the tip of the wick if it fell into molten wax. The first snuffer was invented by Christopher Pinchbeck and patented by him in 1776 in England. 
This shiny, silverplate snuffer is perfect for retrieving pieces of wick that has melted into the wax. It adds a touch of sparkle when you display it with your candles. Stamped on the side. It has the snuffer feature with the scissors all in one. Great vintage condition.
