The V&A archives hold millions of amazing artifacts, including world class collections of glass, textiles, graphics, photography and fashion, offering a wealth of inspiration to designers and manufacturers.
The V&A Collection by Shearer Candles introduces a set of 4 scented candles and reed diffusers taking inspiration from one of the most innovative Arts and Crafts designers, Charles Annesley Voysey (1857 – 1941). Voysey was an English architect, furniture and textile designer famed for his highly original style. This range draws upon a design for a wallpaper by C.F.A Voyset, England about 1900. © Victoria and Albert Museum.
In the range there is a 60 hour Scented Candle in a decorative glass jar, and a 200ml Reed Diffuser, both beautifully presented in a stylish gift box that is sure to impress your recipient. The Reed Diffuser also comes as a handy Refill Set complete with a 200ml bottle of fragranced oil and a set of replacement reeds, so you need not despair when it has run out.
