Detailed information

SILVER ONION – pair of silver plate candle holder by Jens Quistgaard for Dansk Design in 1960s. Classic simple Quistgaard design.

Two polished silver-plated candle holders with a curved base and a tiny taper, extended from the solid base – resembling an onion with its top still on (in Denmark this candle holder is known as a “silver onion”). The solid base creates the possibility to positioned upright or slightly tilted to one side.

Modern and intriguing candle holder that oozes classic Danish Mid-century design. It would be an attractive design piece on any credenza or coffee table, creating a gorgeous flickering light with the special tiny tapers – either as the pair or in a cluster of candle holders.

This pair is in excellent vintage condition with minimal signs of usage and age. Hallmarked IHQ (Jens Harald Quistgaard), Dansk Design and Made in Denmark.

2 PK tiny taper candles included:
This pair of candle holders includes 24 new tiny tapers, handmade by Danish artisan candle maker ElseMarie Haulund of Lysmageren. She uses original techniques and recipes to create these very special tiny tapers out of her workshop in Denmark. To our knowledge ElseMarie is the only artisan candle maker left in the world producing these in line with the original concept of the Quistgaard tiny tapers; dripless, smokeless and with an even burn/melting rate – so at Danish Vintage Design we are very proud to have secured collaboration with her!
Burntime: approx. 2 hours
