Pastilles ain’t just sweets

    This little porcelain house with an operational chimney was listed in part of a lot as a
    “pastille burner”. I couldn't figure out why on earth you would burn sweets so after
    a little googling found this site and a fascinating story about the origin of pastille burners.

    Not sure why the auctioneers called it a “Staffordshire” pastille burner as there are no marks anywhere. Wish some company had marked it as it would have made dating easier. Dimensions – 9.9cm x 7.9cm x 11cm high – 0.24Kg.

    They're almost never marked, but they were nearly all made in Staffordshire, so the description is reasonable.
