The apple and worm have been longstanding symbols for education and teachers. Our fine-pewter candle snuffer is adorned with a book, a pencil cup, star stickers, an apple and a very friendly worm. This makes a great gift to show your teacher your appreciation.
Candle extinguisher or douter
Candle snuffers are designed to extinguish candles safely. They were originally invented circa 1776 and called extinguishers or douters. We have combined the safety of candle extinguishing with the symbol of education to enhance any decor. They are both practical and charming.
