Description: This hand-painted, porcelain
set shows a woman dipping candles in a vat of melted wax. Her daughter looks on. There is a red drying rack where batches of
finished candles hang. Next to the rack
is a basket of wax, a wooden box and a stack of wood. The girl has a satchel and is holding what might be a bundle of
wicks. These are hand-painted pieces, thus there may be normal imperfections and variations in coloring. This set is in its original box
and packaging. It has been carefully
stored indoors in a smoke-free home.

front about any damage or flaws I find, so you will know exactly what you are
