A very unusual and finely made Scottish silver ‘blow pipe’ candle snuffer by Hamilton & Inches or Edinburgh and dated 1887. The pipe is made as long, straw like, tube with slight bend to facilitate holding and with a flat mouthpiece attached to one end. The candle snuffer is heavily made with impressed makers and silver assay marks to the mouthpiece. Possibly created as such to prevent wax from being blown everywhere.

In good used condition.
