In Scandinavian folklore, a tiny man or "Nisse" was believed to watch over the household, and a custom came about to leave Christmas dinner leftovers for the elves to help themselves. Dressed here in the traditional red caps and wick tassels, these two elves look as cute and cordial as ever. Handmade in Finland, the wax of these candles becomes textured towards the bottom, imitating frosty beards and adding to the hand-crafted appeal. Display the Finnish Elf Taper Candles in your favorite candle holders or sconces for fun and festive décor this season. The set comes in a sleeve perfect for gifting!
