Cheese Board Food Candles


Okay, admittedly this doesn't really fit the bill for our shop which often seeks to boast a purist stationery agenda, but we just couldn't help ourselves. So, not withstanding some embarrassment - but probably no apology, please find here our cheese board food candles, a cornucopia of kitsch bounty for your delight and amusement. 

Adding to the joy of these candles is the fact that they are produced artisanally in Italy by a small family-owned business where 'the art of working the wax’ has been handed down from father to son for six generations, and thus any purchase of these extraordinary objects contributes to the continuation of a very valuable small business. The “cereria’ or wax laboratory began in 1840, producing church candles, high in demand those days in the region.

Today the candles are still made by hand, using the highest quality raw materials; the wax used in the process is the same grade used as protection for the food industry. In fact, it is not uncommon to find many types of cheese coated in the same way for preservation. The wicks on the candles are of pure cotton, making them smoke-absorbent and dripless.

!Be safe, these candles should not be left unattended, are not a toy, they should only be handled by adults
