This candle mold, made of tin-coated sheet iron bent to shape and soldered, allows the maker to make four candles at a time.  The strap handle controls the position of the mold when pouring, and the ring hangs the mold while the candles set or for storage.  The shallow pan at the top prevents liquid tallow from spilling or dripping.
