Candlesticks of porcelain and ceramics are decorative. Several of the great manufacturers have created unique candlesticks - for instance Royal Copenhagen, Bing & Grondahl and Bjorn Wiinblad. See the beautiful candlesticks and tealight candleholders below.
Candlesticks from Royal Copenhagen
The set of candlesticks resembling the Three Wise Men is very popular around Christmas time, where the majestic kings gives light in the darkness.
The Three Wise Men candlesticks were released in 2000, but they were originally designed in 1908 by Danish sculptor Rasmus Harboe, who designed several religious figurines.
According to the legend the Three Kings, Kasper, Melchior and Balthazar came from far away to pay homage to the baby Jesus with gold, incense and myrrh. They found the baby Jesus in Bethlehem on January 6th and since then this day has been celebrated worldwide as Epiphany.
Royal Copenhagen tealight cottages are also a hit, mainly around Christmas, but also the rest of the year. The tealight cottages were released in 2005 and despite the popularity of the cottages, the production was stopped after a few years. This means that today the tealight cottages can be hard to find, both because there was not produced so many and because people do not want to sell them again once they get them. The tealight cottages were designed by the renowned Danish artist Sven Vestergaard.
Other Royal Copenhagen porcelain candlesticks include the beautiful white porcelain candlesticks featuring the Swineherd from the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale. The candlesticks are intended for ordinary candles, but they can also be used for tealights, if you use a top glass. This series also include a vase and a chocolate bowl.
Besides these, there are of course also created a lot of other candlesticks in porcelain and faience from Royal Copenhagen.
