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

Originally tapered dinner candels 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.

Dipped tapered dinner candles are still available today, have a look at our great range of pairs of elegant 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 natural material which helps to improve the burn quality of the candle, which helps to reduce the amount of smoking and dripping whilst the candles are burning. Quality table dinner candles are produced by many manufacturers, including; Bolsius of Copenhagen, Eika Candles and Price’s Candles.

Taper dinner candles are available in a wide variety of sizes, allowing you to choose the most appropriate height of candle for your candle holders, and to suit your dinner table arrangements, the tallest tapered dinner candles stocked by thecandleselection are a massive 38cm (15”) tall and are known as banqueting candles.  CAndles in the selection on this page are our range of shorter than standard dinner candles, the standard height for dinner table candles is approximately 25cm.
