Rare Victorian The Royal Perfected Bougie Box Patent Wax Taper Stick Jack Brass:
This rare Victorian patent bougie box stands 90mm (3.5'') high x 58mm (2.25'') across the base. It is marked to the underside " The Royal Perfected Bougie Box " and dates to around the 1870's. It was created along similar lines to a wax jack with a continuous coil of wax inside the box providing a contant light source with a carry handle to the side. It is in good antique condition and ready for use and a rare Victorian oddity and I have not come across one with the text to the base.
International buyers are always welcome to this sale. F.M.O.C. Postage outside the United Kingdom is at cost please contact me for a quote. Due to the recent large increase in UK postage rates I am happy for international buyers to arrange their own collection and domestic buyers to collect in person. Most international postage rates are listed as NOT signed for and NOT insured so if you require either please let me know and I will add it to your invoice. Sadly due to Italy terrible postage system I will always add £5.15 to the postage charge for signed for to ensure it reaches the customer. If the item is listed as " Signed for " on the postage then obviously it is already included. If you have any questions please do contact me. All our items are extremely well packed to save them from damage in transit. If you are not happy with this article based on the information I have provided I will always happily refund minus the cost of any postage. All purchases must be piad for within 3 days of the end of the sale unless agreed otherwise.
