Golden flame Beeswax Candle

This beautiful beeswax candle is in the shape of a Darlington Bottling Company bottle. The tapered neck gives it a smooth burn.

Darlington is the birthplace of the steam train and this antique bottle captures the industrious history of the town. The signage for the company can still be seen on Gladstone Street in Darlington, although it is long abandoned. An advert from a 1958 newspaper explains the company bottled not only mineral water, which was in this bottle, but also spirits, tonics, beer, cordials and high-class table waters!

Hand poured in the UK using 100% British beeswax, with a burn time up to 70 hours.

Beeswax has such a long burn time, while staying clean, natural and bright. It is also sustainable and supporting the bees means supporting a sustainable and healthy environment.
