This was a present from an old friend from Fredericksburg — a colonial stoneware candleholder. I used to sell these from time to time from the gift shop of The Rising Sun Tavern living history museum there.  (Yes, I was indeed one of those character-interpreting tour guides — I was “the tavernkeeper’s son” and I was better at it than you’d guess.)

This thing is really damned neat.  I love it.  It brings back memories of working summers and weekends as a college student at a job that was a lot more fun than most others.
