    Early 1800's candle...and it's still good?

    I had found this candle holder on an old fur traders site and only took me three separate trips to find all three parts (there is still the stub of a black candle inside). My curiosity got the best of me. It still lights. Click image for larger version.

    Its brass and has an iron base (may stick into the electrolysis tank and hopefully that doesn't ruin it). I know nothing about chamber sticks.

    I have a really old and rare copper ship anchor lantern that has half inch left of candle in it... and it too still lights.

    Cool find BTW.

    Very cool save, way to stick at it to make it complete, congrats. I recovered a flintlock rifle 2 years ago at 6", only missing the wood and one brass for-arm trim, been back to find that trim many times with no success
