The Hand of Glory

I always found that The Hand of Glory to be a fantastic item as a keepsake upon which to preserve one's rings when not wearing them.

A former version of the "bleeding hand" candle was actually recalled once due to fire dangers which allowed the flames to exceed 7", which I suppose became a problem for irresponsible folks.

Folkorically, it was said that the amputated left hand of a hanged murderer which burned on its own fat collected during the full moon allowed occultists to enter homes undetected, provided invisibility, & dispensed the whereabouts of treasure. If one of the fingers refused to light, it was said that someone in the household was protected. It was also said to discern fortunes. ∞
