Dansk Designs Quistgaard Iron Candle Tree Holder Danish Vintage Scandinavian 1950s Mid Century Brutalist Modernist Candelabra
Dansk Designs Quistgaard Candle Tree Holder Danish Iron 1950s
Original and authentic Quistgaard-designed Dansk iron Candle Tree.
This candle tree is in particularly good condition.
The stunning and iconic Candle Tree was one of Jens Harald Quistgaard’s early designs when he joined Dansk Designs in the 1950s.
Quistgaard trained as a silversmith and cast iron was his favourite material to work with.
Made in Denmark in the 1950s/60s.
It has ‘Dansk Designs JHQ Denmark’ written on its base.
The top easily unscrews to enable the arms to be moved in a number of different ways as shown in the photos.
It is approximately 49cm tall and 15cm wide. It weighs 1.6kg (over 2kg packed).
It is in excellent vintage condition with a beautiful rich patina.
It takes 7 candles 1/2 inch (approximately 10/11cm) wide, which are available online. (The candles in the photos are not included, they cost £5.50 on EBay).
The photos with candles are of another candle tree to illustrate what it looks like with candles in.
We may disassemble the Candle Tree to facilitate packing and posting. It will take a few minutes to easily reassemble without the need for any tools.
Note that we have attempted to show and state the condition as accurately as possible but this is a pre-loved, vintage item and some minor signs of age and/or use are to be expected.
There may also be slight variations in the colours shown due to lighting, the camera lens and the device the image is viewed through.
