    I have this small wooden candlestick with a mouse with leather tail and ears. Can anyone tell me anything about this. How old it might be or maker?

      The little mouse looks like one from the 1960s-70s that we used in craft projects. I have 2 or 3 of them around here somewhere myself.
      They are so cute with those beady eyes and leather ears and tails!
      The candle holder has the look of a craft project from the 60-70s also.
      I was a member of some mail-order “club” that sent members a random project each month.
      It brought a bit of excitement each month to open the box to see what the project was. I still have 2 of my finished projects: a gum ball dispenser and a wall plaque!

      On a hunch, I searched for wooden candel holder with mouse..several came up in images..some with only the mouse, no candel holder, and yes, a leather tail.
      Several come up as being Danish, from Denmark..Not saying yours is, however, some specify Danish made.
      Also a few varied in design, such as position of the mouse.

      That one looks like it is made of oak...I have one quite similar which was handmade (of walnut instead) by one of my Grampas who had a basement woodshop with a lathe in it. (ca. 1970's) Mine doesn't have the mouse however...that's a cute touch...
