Handmade Tealight Medici Blue
By British Colour Standard
Inspired by Medici Blue porcelain, the first successful attempt in Europe to make imitations of Chinese porcelain. The experimental manufactory housed in the Casino of San Marco in Florence existed between 1575 and 1587 under the patronage of Francesco l de' Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany.
Made from hand blown glass, they are rich with colour and twinkle beautifully when lit, in a jewel-like way.
A BCS lion is etched onto the base of each one to make them extra special.
