Англия. 1547. Серобро, позолота.

Snuffers were used to shorten the wicks of burning candles and prevent them from burning too fast. Snuffing was an essential task until 1820, when the smokeless wick was invented. The blades on these snuffers trimmed the wick while the heart-shaped box held the cut-off ends.
