Scandinavian Brass Serpentine Candlestick for Illums Bolighus Denmark

$481.03

About

This elegant and curvaceous brass candlestick was manufactured and retailed by Illums Bolighus in Denmark. Concerning the Designer others often attribute it to Carl Aubock, but with no conclusive proof that these are his. However, there are several documented brass objects designed and made by Aubock that were also made for retail by Illums Bolighus and can be found in period Illums Bolighus catalogs, such as ashtrays, lamps and magazine holders, but which bear no Aubock marks. This candlestick is marked with the impressed Illums Bolighus on the underside and is in beautiful original vintage condition. Regardless of who designed it, this candle holder is a very timeless charming object and would grace any modern home.
