A PEAK District candlemaker has won a top order from a national catalogue company.

Tissington business On a Wick and a Prayer won the order, for its speciality hand made Hurricane Lanterns, from Cox and Cox.

The lanterns feature antique style lace in the home accessories company’s choice of cream coloured wax.

On a Wick and a Prayer director, Annie Maudling, was thrilled the business had won an order from such a major company.

She said: “I have been able to offer my staff in the workshop extra hours.”

She added: “We have been making different styles of hurricane lanterns for years, inlaid with many different items, from dried county cottage type flowers to glass pebbles and the idea of using lace came through experimentation.”
