Timekeeping Using Candles

A Candle Clock is a thin candle with consistently spaced markings, normally numbers, that when burned could indicate the passing of periods of time. No longer used today, Candle Clocks provided an effective way of telling the time on cloudy days and night times. The candle was also able to be used as a timer, by placing a nail into the wax candle at the desired point, then when the wax surrounding the nail melts the nail falls and clatters onto the plate below.
