Nanking Blue is a seasonal colour name introduced in 1936 to describe a blue colour found in Chinese silks.

Nanjing formerly Romanized as Nanking and Nankin, was the largest city in the world from 1358 to 1425 with a population of 487,000 in 1400. This lovely bright blue has been used for many centuries.

Care - Do not shake candles. The hand-poured nature of the products means that they are very delicate and wax discs may seprate if not handled with care.
