Founded in 1643, it was the provider of the Royal Court of Louis XIV ‘The Sun King’ at Versailles and it’s perfectly white candles also graced most of the greatest churches of France. Cire Trudon was the biggest wax-producing factory in the French Kingdom during the 17th and 18th centuries. In 1762, in his encyclopaedia The art of the wax producer, engineer Duhamel du Monceau, praises the skills of the Trudons and gives the manufacture as an example. Such a level of quality led to King Louis XIV elevating Charles Trudon to the French nobility as Count Trudon des Ormes. POSTAGE £5 UK MAINLAND
