Detailed information

SILVER ONION – set of three silver-plated candle holders by Jens Quistgaard for Dansk Designs in the 1960s. Classic simple Quistgaard design.

Three 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 the candle holders are called “silver onion”). The solid base creates the possibility to positioned upright or slightly tilted to one side.

Modern and intriguing candle holders that oozes classic Danish Mid-century design and they 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.

I have two sets for sale – all polished and 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:
Each set 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
