Our timer pillars have two separate “on” functions. By switching to the “1” position, the timer pillar will remain on until you turn it off. By switching to the “2” position, the timer function is activated. The timer function means the candle stays on for 6 hours, goes off for 18 hours, and then automatically turns back on to repeat the cycle. The time that you originally flip the switch to the “2” position will be the time it comes on each day. If you wish to reset the timer, turn the candle off and back on at the desired time. This is our 3" x 4" flat-top pillar candle that features a grungy textured wax coating on the outside, and a smooth wax coating on the inside with a flame shaped lightbulb. A hand drawn colonial style house adorns this candle.
