Tall hanging box of wood or tin, used for keeping candles. A candle box is a small container or box that is specifically designed for holding and storing candles. It is usually made of wood and has a hinged lid or a removable top to access and light the candles. Candle boxes were commonly used in the past to store and transport candles safely, protecting them from dust and damage.
