A marriage of two centuries of artisan craft tradition and modern industrial adaptation, these stunning candles are a worthy centerpiece for any dining table or fireplace mantel. For six generations, the Introna family has manufactured a variety of quality candles for all occasions and tastes, from traditional church votives and striking obelisks, to their spectacularly detailed and fanciful range of food-shaped candles.
Founded in 1840 by Nicola Introna, who saw a demand for clean-burning, high quality wax candles in the deeply religious region of Puglia, in the southeastern corner of Italy. As demand for votive and worship candles wained in the late 20th century, Cereria Intona adopted new manufacturing methods and began producing more elaborate “artistic” candles.
