Vintage Tin Candle

I found this interesting vintage tin on a recent thrifting trip...


I've never seen one like it... it had a lid, or a base...
not quite sure what kind of tin it is, but I think it was for baking...

I glued a glass tea light cup to the base of the tin
and drilled a hole in the top for a knob.

The tin makes a beautiful tea light holder with a top
that can be replaced over the candle when finished burning.

If anyone knows just what kind of tin this is,
I would love to know.

I am happy to say that it lasted in the Homeroad Shop 
exactly one day... Enjoy!

  3. Even the knob color is vintage. I call it Wedgewood Green. Wedgewood stoves came several colors, including "mint". I restored one and used it in one of the homes we built...

  4. I think it was a pudding or jello mold. I've never seen one like it either. How cool!
