This set of two beeswax candles certainly are different and some may say a little macabre. These beeswax candles, created in small batches by Askew Candles in Darlington are made from moulds of original poison bottles. Poison bottles were originally designed to have very distinctive shapes. This was due to the lack of electricity in Victorian times, and their unique shapes were so you didn't grab the wrong bottle in the dark and well...poison yourself. These bottle candles that say 'NOT TO BE TAKEN' on them evoke a sense of history of bottle making, when the design was certainly as important as the liquids they held.
