About the design
SCONCE – by Dantoft Kunstartikler, Denmark circa 1970s. Unique artisan work and wall candle holder in wrought iron with a round orange-brown glass stone.
Black lacquered, welded wrought iron with a round polished orange-brown glass stone in the center. Above and under the glass stone two horizontal strips forms a linear pattern together with one vertical strip on each side of the glass stone. Two circular shapes are places like wings on each side of the glass stone. The bottom is made up by a shallow candle holder, suitable for a large candle up to 3″ (7,5 cm) in width.
The glass piece is placed so the flickering candlelight is reflected and thus creating shadows along the symmetric pattern of the wrought iron. A beautiful wall sculpture that would look amazing at the end of a long hall way or a vintage addition living space.
This sconce is made by Dantoft, a company that had their heyday in the 1960s and 1970s. Dantoft designed wall sculptures in many different forms and shapes, some as candle holders and some as wall sculptures with shallow candle holder at the bottom. One theme connected all the wall sculptures; carefully arranged glass pieces – so light would be reflected in the many colorful glass pieces.
This piece is in excellent vintage condition with minimal signs of usage and age. Please see the photos!
