Vintage Gurley Christmas Candles
My favorite vintage Christmas candles are from the Gurley Novelty line of candles. Gurley Novelty started out in Buffalo, New York in 1939 as part of candlemaker Franklin Gurley's W&F Manufacturing Co. Inc.. Gurley's first products were marketed under the name Tavern. In 1949 Franklin Gurley bought the rights to the Tavern brand, and changed the name to the Gurley Novelty Co.
