  • 6"L
Candles were an important part of everyday life in the 18th century. Bayberry candles were among the most prized candles in colonial America because of their clear, more consistent light and pleasant scent. One of the first written accounts of bayberry candles was in 1698 and exclaimed that instead of "stinking" they really do "perfume like incense." A Virginian historian reported in 1705 that the process of making bayberry candles was a very "modern discovery."
This set of two hand-dipped candles was made using traditional early American methods. Crafted from the waxen berries of the bayberry shrub, these candles arrive with a printed insert that explains the tradition of burning candles on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve for good luck.

6/8" diameter at the bottom.

Brand new!

NOTE: All of my Colonial Williamsburg items are bought in the Colonial Williamsburg historic area or the Merchant’s Square stores associated with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Some of these items are made in other countries but they are exclusively made for Colonial Williamsburg. I do not buy or sell any items from the Williamsburg Pottery Factory or the Outlet stores. I prefer to support the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and not a strip mall.

I gladly combine items to reduce shipping costs. If you buy more than one item, when you’re done shopping, send me a request for total and I’ll send you an adjusted invoice.

I'm sorry but I no longer ship first class mail international because there's no tracking information or insurance. I've been ripped off several times and will only ship priority mail international now.

Payment expected within 4 days of sale end.

Please email with any questions.
