Burlap Candlestick holders

Burlap/denim candleholders were used in the late 1800's. Miners would put the candle through the fabric to prevent the wax from dripping on their hands. Here are a few images of the holders that were found on the last journey with Mike and Charla. I also included a photo of some fabric that was found. More photos on of the trip.
