About the design
Candlestick holder / Vase designed by Jens H. Quistgaard for Dansk designs, 1960s.
Magnificent candlestick holder made in polished brass with an elegant curvaceous body, a top disc and holder for candlesticks with a diameter of 0.9″ / 2,2 cm. This candlestick holder have an unique and genius feature – transforming into vases by unscrewing the candle holder part, and turning the whole thing upside down (see photo 3).
Inside the body, near the bottom edge, you will find the hallmark – the early logo from Dansk Designs with Denmark IHQ underneath it. The four ducks in the old logo, represented a unified family of products, while the three wavy water lines signified the three major canals of Copenhagen where it all began in 1954.
Timeless design from Quistgaard and an excellent example of mid-century design. They would fit perfectly on any dining table, credenza or small dresser.
