A striking candelabra from the early cast-iron series
from Jens Quistgaard for Dansk design. This design with a brass fittings
handle at the top, holds seven Individual candle-holders separated by
brass coloured washers that pivot around a central axis. The handle
is the adjuster, by loosening the handle you can adjust where the candle
holder is at a particular level. A well thought out design feature is
the drip well bases and lopped finials. The candle holder is stamped
to the base J.H.Q. Denmark. The candlestick is an excellent example
of Mid century modern Scandinavian design.
The candle holder takes the vario candles, see our candles overview
Jens H. Quistgaard designed Dansk's very first products in 1954, his
designs made Dansk famous for what it is today (quality and good design).
