Moorcroft Candlesticks


Candlesticks







The craft of making tallow candles began in England in the 13th Century. The wick was repeatedly dipped into melted tallow (animal fat) to build up a candle.

Candles were early status symbols; their usage provided an insight into a household's wealth and status.

The 18th century saw an increase in the number of craftsmen making striking light fittings, including elaborate candlesticks and crystal chandeliers in which to burn the precious candle.

Today we do not burn candles for light but because we enjoy the ambience they provide in any room setting.

Moorcroft is continuing the craft of producing 'striking' candlesticks for the home.
