Small Japanese Cast-Iron Candle Holder

R165.00

I probably paid a bit too much for today’s wee cast-iron candle holder! I assumed that it was made by Dansk, as they sold a variety of very similar designs, but having done a bit of research I think it’s more likely a Japanese piece – it’s very similar to a Japanese-made ‘Danish’ design that was produced for Hallmark Candles. It’s still very interesting though, with a very Brutalist feel to it – besides its size, there’s nothing dainty about this candle holder! Also, obviously it was designed for skinny, tapered candles – although it can take a normal candle in its centre – and tapered candles aren’t always super easy to come by. But if you did manage to buy some, just imagine how wild it would look – the candle holders are angled, so you would have this mass of candles shooting outwards – I think the effect would be quite striking!
