Colourful candles with a twist.
Our eco, fair trade dinner candles are striped in bold bands of British Colour Standard Saxe Blue & Primrose Yellow.
The word Saxe is not English but is adopted from the French, where it means Saxony or Saxon. Saxony Blue was a universally-used synonym for Smalt as early as 1550. Likewise Bleu de Saxe has long been a synonym for Prussian Blue, but since 1753 Saxon Blue has been most familiar as a widely-used name for indigo extract.
Primrose is matched to flowers of that name growing in Surrey, England. Standardised in 1934.
Perfect for special occasions these unique candles make a wonderful gift.

Important - Candle-care. Handle with care and do not shake candles. The hand-poured nature of the product means that this is a delicate item and wax discs can separate if rattled too much.
