Colonial Candles of Cape Cod M Baker Apocathary Jar Collection

Presenting M. Baker Holiday Limited Editions and Everyday by Colonial Candle of Cape Cod.

Mabel Baker, a former school teacher, begun making hand-dipped candles in 1905 in her tiny Massachusetts Cape Cod kitchen.  Her candles were so popular with family and friends that she started selling them in her husband's local hardware store. 

By 1909, many stores in the Cape Cod area were selling Mrs Baker's candles and Colonial Candle® was in business.


Recognised as the first candle company started by a woman, Colonial Candle® is still made in North Carolina today with the same pride and craftsmanship established over a century ago. Mabel Baker also started the PartyLite network marketing candle business.
