Candle Chandler - What is a Candle Chandler

Candle Chandler Meaning

A candle chandler meaning is, "a handmade maker and seller of tallow, wax candles, and also usually soap". 

A chandlery was originally the office in a wealthy medieval household responsible for wax, candles and soaps as well as the room in which the candles were kept. The head person of a chandlery would be the Chandler and was an important and trusted position. In many households it would be managed by the head of the kitchen, but in larger households, it would be a separate office under the leadership of the chandler.

Chandler - History of the Name

The word "chandler" was first introduced to the UK in the late 14th century from the Norman word "chandeler"meaning a candlemaker or a candlestick. The job title, Chandler, still exists as someone who works in the chandlery business or manages a chandler's shop. Interestingly, the more modern name of Chandelier used to be an ornate, branched ceiling light fixture holding many candles. Although the term is still widely used, nowadays Chandeliers are usually powered by electricity.
