Gurley Easter

I inherited a nice collection of Gurley (and a few Tavern) candles from my grandmother.  Ninety percent of it is Christmas, but here are two Easter candles. The "running" rabbit has always been a favorite of mine.  It just makes you happy.

In case you don't know, the New York based Gurley company put out novelty candles from the late 1940s to the 70s.  Most of mine are from the 50s.  They are considered collectibles today and can be found at antique stores and on Ebay, etc. Many of them still have the original prices printed on the paperboard bottoms-- such as 10 cents, 15 cents.  Can you believe it?
