Only the finest beeswax is used to produce these slow-burning candles. They're made in Illinois by the descendants of a French beekeeper who settled there in 1863. His high standards still prevail. Virtually smoke and drip free, the solid beeswax pillars and tapers feature top-quality, woven wicks that ensure even burning. The 3" diam. pillars will burn for approx. ten hours per inch of height (4" pillar burns for 40 hours, the 6" pillar burns for 60 hours and the 8" pillar burns for 80 hours). Each 7/8" diam., 12" long taper will burn for approx. 16 hours. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
