Italian Meat Candles


  • A candle to remind you of Italy, or that you’re going to go to Italy someday.
  • If you choose to burn it, the cotton wick will minimize smoke and dripping.
  • Highest-quality paraffin wax smells like wax, not meat, silly.
  • Because the candles are made by hand in small batches, candles may vary slightly from what you see in photos


  • 5.25 x 3 x 3.75’’

An Italian ham that has many names—capicola, coppa, capocollo, gabagool (shoutout to Tony Soprano)—is such a legend that it’s been immortalized in wax. Handmade by Cereria Introna, the same Italian sixth-generation family business that brings you our fruit candles. This feels urgent: we also have a cheese candle. Get a picnic going. Or a still life.
