c. 1978 Spencer's Gifts Water Candle Answered

Back in the late 70's Spencer's Gifts sold something called a "Water Candle". It was actually a wax sculpture made to look like stalagmites with a regular candle on the inside. When lit the flickering candle shone through the translucent wax. The sculpture itself didn't melt and the candle could be replaced.

Does anyone know where there is any info (especially pictures) of this type of thing.

I haven't seen that, but something similar - you take a milk carton (or other vessel), put in a wick, then fill it with ice cubes. Pour the wax and it leaves shapes where the ice melted out. Very Scifi looking.
