Curator Pick of the Month

Title: Candle Snuffer
Artist: Unknown
Creation Date: 19th century
Origin: United States
Medium: Silver

In celebration of April Fools' day, the Drexel Collection has selected this deceptive item, which at first glance appears to be a pair of scissors, but in reality it is a candle snuffer. There are several different types of candles snuffers, this particular pair was used to trim the wick of candles and catch the charred remains in the small box on top of the blades. These were made obsolete with the invention of the self-snuffing wick around 1825.

Welcome to the Collection

Drexel University, initially Drexel Institute of Art, Science and Industry, was founded on the belief that education should be both practical and cultural—and that art should be not only beautiful, but educational. On that principle, The Drexel Collection—the University’s flagship collection of art—was founded alongside the University in 1891. Today, the Collection remains a resource for historically and culturally significant works of art as Drexel University pioneers a model for the modern, urban university.
