Royal Worcester Candle Extinguisher "Mrs Caudle" (shape 72) Dated 1903

£100    $130    €119
Royal Worcester Candle 'Extinguisher' (snuffer) in the form of Mrs Caudle (shape 72) in blush ivory and (green) date stamped for 1903.
 
In perfect condition, no chips, cracks or signs of repair. Gilding a little worn in places, consistant with age.
 
Mr Caudle and his wife were characters originated by Douglas Jerrold for Punch magazine. Produced from 1855 to the 1950s and was, for a short run, reproduced in 1976. This style of candle 'snuffer' came about following the invention of candle wicks that no longer needed cutting after each use, in so doing making the previous scissor action candle extinguishers virtually redundant.
