The snuffer was said to have been developed by English innovator Christopher Pinchbeck, and patented in 1776. His device was pretty as it was practical: A snuffer could extinguish a burning flame and simultaneously prevent hot wax from splattering onto the tabletop as well as keep the room smoke-free.
Soon thereafter, a snuffer could be found in every home. It became so popular that the poem “Ode to Mr. Pinchbeck, Upon His Newly Invented Candle Snuffers” was penned by Malcolm MacGreggor.
