About the design
This wrought iron sconce and candle holder is produced by Dantoft Kunstartikler, Denmark circa 1970s.
It is made up of curved black lacquered, welded wrought iron and a light amber thick glass round stone in the middle. Towards the side the wrought iron is bent into swirls, whereas above and under the glass stone, the long spire features a circular shaped and a butterfly shaped piece. At the bottom there is a shallow candle holder – fits a large candle for up to 3″ (7,5 cm) in width.
The light amber polished glass stone in the middle are placed to reflect the flickering candlelight and thus creating shadows to the surrounding wall. A true vintage addition to any modern decor – and is sure to catch positive attention from your guests!
Often bears the Dantoft sticker underneath the shallow candle holder.
