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.
