This is one of the most amazing candle-holders I've ever seen.

It's made in cast iron and was designed by Jens harald Quistgaard for Dansk International around 1960... well, i do believe it's from the 1950s, but have been unable to find any info to use as reference to claim so.

It holds 12 candles (the kind of thin tall ones I remember we used at Christmas when i was a kid... I admit haven't looked for them now, so I wonder if they're still made nowadays).
