Battersea Sperm Candles

Who wouldn't enjoy a softly lit evening by the fire with a Sperm candle? Sounds heavenly does it not?

Uber rare unopened box of antique Price's Battersea Sperm Candles in great original condition. Fab artwork makes this item very special indeed.

Sperm candles?? Sperm candles were derived from an oil (spermaceti) extracted from Sperm whales (unfortunately) and were actually more expensive than the 'high end' beeswax used in many grand houses in Victorian England. Prices can trace their history back to 1830, but became Prices Patent Candle Company in 1847. This pack is still sealed and dates from the late 19th Century. We are delighted to say these are no longer made for obvious reasons - however, this pack is a rare survivor indeed.
