Finnish Footed Ball Candles or Pedestal Ball Candles are delightful in both their shape and color. Create eye-catching candle arrangements by combining candles of different colors. Since 1976, these Finnish candles have been handcrafted in a small factory located near Jyväskylä in Vaajakoski, Finland.
This surface-painted candle is a perfect fit for the famed iittala Festivo candlesticks.
Thanks to the high-quality paraffin and cotton heart thread, the ball candle burns beautifully and cleanly for 12 hours. Ball candles are sold in a packaged set of two candles.

If anyone else has hunted for this style of candle, you know how exciting it was to find these! The candles that arrived were exactly as pictured, and the couple of times I communicated with the store, the staff were very friendly and helpful.
Finnish Footed Ball Candle Red (Set of 2)
Sadly I LOVE the fact that Touch of Finland carries these candles. I ordered six in RED. They are more of a dark orangey pink than the color shown in the photo. I kept them because postage costs are so high. Too bad! Looked forward to RED candles for my iitala candlesticks.
Sorry to hear you're disappointed with the color. The candles are handmade in small batches and sometimes the color will be a bit different between batches. I'm sure the next batch will have a slightly different color again. The company we're ordering from is the sole manufacturer in Finland still producing this type of candle, so we don't have much for options. We're just glad to have them available again after so many years! - Jordan
