The candlesticks as well as the candle holders are available in traditional and contemporary design. A classic brass candlestick or a pewter candlestick that fits beautifully in the dining room, bedroom, on the coffee table or on the dinner table. Design that complements and elevates furnishings as well as interiors.
Today, many of Svenskt Tenn’s candlesticks and most advanced pewter and brass products are produced at the family-owned metal workshop Humstorp in Västergötland in Sweden. Josef Frank’s iconic Knot of Friendship candelabra, which is suitable for all special occasions, from baptisms to weddings to birthdays and graduation time, is among the products that are made here. This candelabra was designed in 1938, a year before the outbreak of the Second World War, as a symbol of friendship and peace in a time when Europe was filled with turmoil. Its symbolism is timeless and every bit as beautiful today as when it first appeared.
The tall Globe, Clover and Bamboo candlesticks all have a long history at Svenskt Tenn as the company’s founder, Estrid Ericson, loved to create decorative table settings with candlesticks. Lighting at the dinner table was something that she was particularly fond of, and in a 1951 radio talk she imparted some main rules for increased wellbeing: “The light should be high enough so as not to shine from below and cast an unflattering light. The flowers should be so low, that you can see the person across the table unhindered.”
In addition to designs by Josef Frank and Estrid Ericson the range also includes classic candlesticks created by fine blacksmiths, designers and sculptors such as Sigurd Persson, Björn Trägårdh and Edvin Öhrström.
