Cire Trudon - Ernesto

The family supplied candles to King Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI as well as Versailles and most of the great churches of France. The perfectly white, luxurious and long burning wax was the favorite of the court. The glass of each candle is unique and hand crafted in Tuscany, Italy. Their shape is inspired by champagne buckets.
