A Rare Find!

1920's? or perhaps even older.. Candle & Instructions!

Surprisingly heavy block of a type of wax?

It has a raised top with two wicks laid across the slightly raised top.

Incised in the top is;
"LIGHT THIS"

To find a candle is unusual enough - but the wrapper around the candle and the additional further instruction wrapper would be really hard to find these days!

The wrapper around the candle reads;

" Light the Raised Centre
Johnson & Johnson
Place the fumigator in an earthenware dish containing wet sand or earth"

The outside wrapper has written;
"Fire Caution.
Square Fumigator.
Burning sulphur creates intense heat.
To avoid fire place the fumigator (or the box of four) in an earthenware dish containing wet sand or earth, or water may be used.
Remove this paper before lighting"

The candle has never been lit.
It and its wrapper appear in excellent undamaged condition apart from dirty marks on the candle wax.
The outer advertising wrapper has some edge tears.
