Antique Candle: The Old Made New

Every month, the Antique Candle Works team prepares for the biggest sale we have: the antique candle sale.  This month, the sale is being held online on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 at 8 p.m. EST.  The antique vessels used for the candles are found by Brittany or her family and friends, and it is always so interesting seeing the history held in each item.  I can only imagine someone cracking open one of the old coffee tins and making themselves a drink before work, or making bread out of an old loaf pan for supper.  It is remarkable knowing that these vintage pieces were once actually used every day, and we are making them into something new and beautiful.

While all of our antique candles are unique, there are some that stand out above the rest every month. Old Blue Ball jars are a constant attraction by followers of Antique Candle Works, and therefore we feature as many as we can in each sale.  Not only are these jars lovely, vintage additions that draw every eye to them, but the fragrances we pour into the jars fill an entire room with captivating scents.  These antique blue glass jars were once used for canning and preserving food, so when we hand pour them, I often wonder what was previously inside.  It is also fascinating to judge just how old each jar may actually be by the differences in the Ball logo.  Some may even be from the early 1900s!

Blue Ball jars are classic antique pieces that perfectly express what we are trying to do at Antique Candle Works.  They are a huge inspiration to our style and the idea of taking something old and making it new.  The jars represent the past and tradition in an exceptional way that bring something special into any home.  Just like all candles from Antique Candle Works, these Blue Ball candles are individually hand poured with love, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
