Candle Holder The Knot of Friendship 1938 Silver plated

440 USD (incl. VAT)

Josef Frank designed Vänskapsknuten (the Knot of Friendship) as a symbol of friendship and peace at a time when Europe was filled with turmoil. The very first sketch of the candelabra dates back to 1938, just a year before the outbreak of the Second World War. Today the Knot of Friendship has become an iconic object in Svenskt Tenn’s range. In 2018, after a careful assessment of Josef Frank’s original drawing, the candelabra regained its original form from 1938.

  • Designer: Josef Frank

    Josef Frank grew up in Vienna and studied architecture at Konstgewerbeschule. In the 1920s he designed housing estates and large residential blocks built around common courtyards in a Vienna with severe housing shortages. In 1925 he started the Haus & Garten interior firm together with architect colleagues Oskar Wlach and Walther Sobotka. Svenskt Tenn hired Josef Frank in 1934 and just a few years later he and Estrid Ericson made their international breakthrough. Although he was already 50 when he left the burgeoning Nazism in Vienna for Sweden, Frank is considered one of Sweden’s most important designers. Read more

  • Care instructions

    Silver is a natural material that reacts when it comes in contact with air, resulting in oxidation. The speed in which oxidation takes place depends on, for example, humidity. Surfaces change over time; Shiny surfaces become somewhat duller while duller surfaces can get shinier.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool and the like. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.

    All of Svenskt Tenn’s silver candlesticks are made of silver-plated solid brass. This means that the candlesticks should be carefully polished and exposed to as little mechanical wear as possible. The thickness of the silver-plating is affected with each polishing.
