Cire Trudon

Trudon Louis XIV Bust (Unscented) - Stone

£210.00

Absolute authority: chin up, proud bust and a contemptuous attitude, the Sun King rules.
Immortalized in a 7-meter high monumental sculpture by François Girardon (1699), the ‘Louis XIV à cheval’ took centre stage Place Vendôme before the statue was raised to the ground, in 1792, during the French revolution. Today a resident of the Musée du Louvre, the bust still stands tall, reproduced in a smaller scale.
An iconic royal figure and messenger of “l’art à la française”, Louis XIV now looks over Trudon’s collection of busts.

Please be aware that this is a decorative item, and should not be burnt. The wick is demonstrative of it being made of wax only.

Unscented

In 1643, founder Claude Trudon was a respected candle maker and merchant trading handmade wax alongside spices, fruits and flowers. Recognised as the oldest candle maker in the world, 17th Century manuscripts confirm Trudon as the official candle supplier to the French Royal Court with a reputation for using only the finest quality wax.

Today, inspired by the Royal palaces, churches, cathedrals and garden locations where Kings and Queens would once roam, the Trudon collection is a re-imagining of a rich history using ingredients in their purest form from some of the world’s most beautiful regions.
