A 19th Century miner's candlestick
Hand forged by a skilled blacksmith
Used during hard rock mining for precious metals.

Stuck into the cap while walking to the job site
Providing light in the wall of the mine
Then stuck into a timber to light up the site
And always kept safely away from the dynamite
