From the 1600's to the 1800's... If a young gentleman looked OK with Dad... the candle was placed high up when lit so that the daughter and young man had a lot of courting time... If Dad had any doubts... the spiral "shortened the time!" When the candle burned out... the young man's visit was over. For refills... candle holder accepts a 1/2" X 6" candle. Beautiful remake of authentic country decor... courting candlesticks. To secure candle to wooden hammer for perfectly straight stance... hold match to the bottom of candle until it melts and starts dripping... immediately place the bottom of the candle to the top of the hammer... it will adhere itself to the wood.
