Vintage Wax Snowmen

My Vintage Wax Snowmen

They are all candles- 
If ever I miss electricity they may all go up in smoke.
The two below are very old.
Aren't they cute

A Bit of  History:
Gurley Novelty,  started in 1939, 
was a manufacturer primarily known for making
 holiday candles shaped like small figurines,
commissioned by Exxon Mobile as a way to reuse
excess paraffin produced as a by-product of the oil refinery process.
Though each candle came with a wick, they were not marketed as practical candles.
Primarily sold at dime stores such as Woolworth.
In the recent years Gurley candles have become popular collectibles.

The snowman below I found recently in perfect condition.
