Object Detail

Cylindrical metal candle box, painted black. The ends of the box are domed. There is a hinged lid, with a hinged catch at the front. Behind the lid, at the rear of the box are two cleats widening towards the outer end, with holes at the tops.

The candle box was brought out to New Zealand by the donor's parents Mr and Mrs Arthur Hubert Price aboard the Lancashire Witch (ship), which arrived in Lyttelton, Canterbury, in 1863.
