Life lights were night lights which used oil and a floating wick to produce a small light to comfort a child at night. Welz made them in many styles. The most commonly found shape was the 'tri lobed heart' shape at about 7 inches tall. The taller versions, at around 8 inches tall, are less commonly found.
The one I'm posting here is a taller one and so fits in with the small group in image three. It is the same shape as the pair of dark spatter life lights in image three. You probably can't see this clearly because the rigaree on this stripey one hides the distinctive 'bulge' between cup and stem. Though the stripes are different the construction, white stripes between a pink inner and a clear outer, is the same as that of the pink light in image three.
