Standard tapers are the typical design for a candle that is larger at the bottom and tapers essentially to a point at the wick for burning. This stems from the process where the candle was made by hand-dipping the wick into the molten wax allowing a slow build-up of volume such that the excess wax flowed down from the tip of the candle toward the base conferring the larger diameter.
We offer 6 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch Handipt TM tapers from Colonial Candle® as well as 9 inch and 12 inch Hand Dipped Tapers from Root®.
Also available are formal or dinner tapers, rustic or textured tapers (sometimes described are Florentine), ribbed or fluted tapers often referred to as Grecian tapers, beeswax tapers, pegged or carriage tapers, and metallic tapers.
All of the standard tapers are smokeless and dripless. Made in the USA.
