How exquisite are these traditional Japanese alter candles made in contemporary forms?
Handmade by craft-persons on the Noto Peninsula, in Ishikawa prefecture of western Japan, using the finest quality natural plant wax - this unscented set of 5 candles would look stunning as a collective on a long dinner table or lined up on a mantelpiece or sideboard.
Of course you can choose to burn just one at a time or as a set for a special occasion - or just gaze lovingly towards them...
This would make a unique gift for a friend who loves quality candles, style, design and form.
Once again - reluctant to sell these.. we have just one set.
The candles come boxed with burning instructions to assist them in lasting as long as possible. The particular wax used is renowned for burning more slowly than most candles - just keep them away from any breeze.
Note: This type of candle burns very bright with a large flame so they are best spaced a little apart if lit at the same time.
Condition : New
Size - each candle is 12 cm long
