Set of six small candlesticks (H: 12cm) in glass containing an air bubble, design by Bent Severin (1925 2012) for the Danish glassworks Holmegaard in 1957. These candlesticks come from the "Princess" collection which offered a whole range glasses (water, wine, cognac, champagne, etc.) for tableware. They can be used as individual candle holders to place near the guests' plates, in the center of the table or placed on a fireplace, a piece of furniture or in front of a window as in northern countries. (an original label still present on one of the candlesticks).

Bent Severin is best known as an architect, he created factories and hotels in 1960 when he set up his own agency in Denmark before leaving to live and work in Singapore in 1973. But he also worked as a designer, notably for the Holmegaard glassware with the Princess series, for Gense with the Old Farmer cutlery series or by designing a futuristic-looking bus for the SAS airline!
