By Royal Appointment no less!

The general basis of a candle remains the same today as it was then, that is a wax column filled with a wick which is lit to provide either light (or heat). As a candle manufacturer, Prices are known as Chandlers which is where the term chandelier comes from. They make the majority of their candles in Europe in their Italian Factory; however the Head Office remains in the UK. Most candles these days are made out of paraffin, beeswax or other plant waxes. Originally Prices developed a stearine candle which was a cheaper alternative to beeswax and they hold a number of patents in this regard, hence their official title Prices Patent Candles. This, together with the development of more modern mass production methods led them to be a market leader in candle production during those times.

Their ranges include traditional dinner candles (Sherwood), church (altar) candles, along with the popular pillar and tea lights.
