Editor's notes

Cire Trudon’s Marie Antoinette candle bust depicts the former Queen of France – a figure as controversial as she is iconic.

Cire Trudon’s wax bust range reflects the brand’s rich and venerable history, creating candles for the French nobility since 1643. This idealised portrait of Marie Antoinette shows her with a crown of fleur-de-lis and pearls, her shoulders swathed in delicate fabric. After her execution during the French Revolution, many depictions of the former Queen Consort disappeared or were destroyed – this little-known copy is attributed to one of the Brachard brothers, either Jean-Charles-Nicolas or Jean-Nicolas-Alexandre. Display this wax bust for a flagrantly opulent interiors accent.

About

Cire Trudon, the world's oldest candlemaker, has been turning wax into light since 1643. Founded on Rue Saint Honoré, just down the road from the Tuileries Palace, the company and its innovations became a part of French history, appearing in a Balzac book and, more importantly, supplying illumination to Louis XIV, Marie Antoinette and, eventually, Napoleon. Today, having survived revolution and the invention of electricity, Cire Trudon works with contemporary noses and desingers to make distinctive – and gorgeously packaged – scented candles.
