Candle Snuffer - Jordyn


This artifact is a candle snuffer, and it is used for putting  out candles.  It is a black  cone with a short handle. The cone is 3” tall and is made out of metal. It is was used in the fort during the 1800’s because it was a convenient and safe way to put out candles to protect the fort from fire started by a candle. It was technology because there was no electricity then so there advancement of technology was a candle snuffer instead of a light switch. Since everyone was not able to afford a candle snuffer it would also be the Socio-economics / Class theme.
