The tapered dinner candle, one of the most traditional types of candle, has been used in households to provide light for hundreds of years.

Originally tapered dinner candles were manufactured by hand, dipping wicks in molten wax, allowing the wax to dry, and repeating the hand dipping process until the desired candle diameter had been achieved. This process generally resulted in elegant candles with a gradually tapering diameter. The chandler would typically produce a pair of candles on the same piece of wick, using the wick between the two to raise and lower the candles during the dipping process.

Hand dipped tapered dinner candles are still available today, have a look at our great range of pairs of hand dipped tapered dinner candles from Broste of Copenhagen.

Today’s modern tapered dinner candles are equally as elegant, but are typically presented singularly, many of the better quality candles containing stearin a material which helps to improve the burn quality of the candle and helps to reduce the amount of smoking and dripping whilst the candles is burning. Quality tapered dinner candles are produced by many manufacturers, including; Bolsius of Copenhagen, Eika Candles and Price’s Candles.
