Carat Anthracite Candle Holders 2 pcs
The Carat candle holder is a modern take on cut crystal with a stem creating a sense of jewels. There is a balance between the minimalistic, steady base and the asymmetric. The metal ring at the top is a contrast to the crystal and it protects the glass from the melting stearin.
The candle holder is available in clear crystal that comes in various sizes. The clear candle holder and the anthracite are designed to be combined on the set table.
“The black candle holder is punky and brings drama to the whole Carat series. I associate the blackish gray color to anthracite. It’s a special rock, a type of coal, just like diamonds” – Lena Bergström

Inspired by jewels & gemstones
Inspired by her fascination for jewels & gemstones, the Carat series by Lena Bergström consists of extraordinary candle holders as well as vases and high-quality bowls for fruit or other snacks.
“I want them to stand out in the room with sparkling elegance. The grinding is asymmetrical, and the original vase form is ‘eaten up’ by the ground area.“
A stack of polished diamonds resting on stainless steel
Standing on solidly crafted feet, they shine even without candlelight. Due to their different heights, the candle holders complement each other perfectly and can be expanded into a whole forest of cut crystal stems. The round vases provide a pleasant contrast and sparkle particularly strongly in the evening due to the flames of the candles.
Typical of the Orrefors brand
The angular, asymmetrical shapes are a reflection on our times with an added touch of Nordic romance. In charming contrast to the slender candlesticks are the roundish flat tea light holders. Their particular design highlights all the postitve qualities of glass. This design technique, typical of the Orrefors brand, is an eye-catcher for any lover of high-quality designed glass objects.
