About

This snuffer was developed by Christopher Pinchbeck the Younger, and patented by him in 1776 in England. His device looks like a pair of scissors with a raised bowl atop them. The idea was to snip the wick, which was caught in the bowl and extinguish the candle safely with no soot or wax on the walls from blowing, or hot wicks catching anything on fire.
