Arts & Crafts Museum Hangzhou

This copper candle wick trimmer has a special appearance: a longer blade with a triangle tip followed by a cuboid box without lid and then a nail to fix this blade with the other, which is shorter, also with a cuboid box to match the other, constituting a closed temporary storer for the wick that has been cut. There is a rivet as ornament on each of the finger bow and an openwork cross, a symbol of the western religion, can be found on the section between the finger bow and the blade tip.
