Italian Ball Candle
The Italian Ball Candle is a top-quality candle made by using the lacquer technique, an artisan method that creates a polished finish that resembles glass. Cereria Graziani, the makers of the Meloria Candle, is one of the last manufacturers in Italy that still uses this technique. These Italian Ball Candles are suitable for any setting, from casual gathering to formal events.
The extremely reflective finish of these ball candles is achieved through a handmade process by Cereria Graziani’s artisans. Each candle is initially dyed by immersing it in a special wax bath for 24 hours. The candle is then immersed in a natural cellulose-based varnish which takes up to six days to dry. Graziani doesn't use ovens to accelerate this process; rather, the company believes that a slow and natural drying system guarantees an excellent product.
