This is a French black steel candle holder known as a candle rat. These were used in French cellars and are so called as the holder resembles a rats tail. The centre handles wind the candle up and down as it burns out. These have been used in France for 100s of years, this is not an old version, more a vintage style rather than vintage in age example. It is probably no more than 15-20 years old and was bought at a traditional French brocante market. This is a handy little item even today, for power cuts or just for a vintage ambiance to any home. Can be useful on a boat or for camping as the candle is safer than a standard candle holder as its kept upright within the tail. As all the items we sell are used or vintage they will show signs of a previous life, this is part of their unique French shabby chic appeal and vintage history not flaws, as such if you are looking for new, then our items may not be for you. See our website vintage brocante shop selling over 300 unique, vintage and up cycled French brocante finds for your home and garden including more vintage and rustic kitchenalia.
