The appeal of vintage candle holders

Candles are often associated with special occasions, but it does not have to be so. Candles can be used any time to create a warm feeling of calmness in any situation. Whether you are looking to generate a relaxing ambience in your living room, a sanctuary in your bathroom or even a sense of romance in the bedroom, candles are always a winner. Yet, it is important to remember that while the wax itself will eventually burn away, it is the candle holders that will be used again and again.

Candle holders can be placed literally anywhere – on the mantlepiece, in the windowsill, in the middle of your dining table or even on a console table in the hallway. And thanks to a huge choice of vintage candle holders from different eras in history, you can find a look that suits your needs. Whether you want a stand-out set that really make a statement on your dining table or a more subtle design for the hallway, we have you covered here at Vinterior.

Choosing vintage candle holders

Here are just a few options to consider when shopping for vintage candle holders:

Ceramics

If you want a sturdy, durable ceramic candle holder, there are plenty of great options from across the eras. Take, for instance, the Anuschka models from Austrian manufacturer Zeller, made in the 1970s. Available in bright colours like red and yellow, with floral pattern designs, these can really work well as accent pieces. Or how about a pair of Art Deco tortoiseshell candlesticks for a more ostentatious finish.

Metal

Want a little unadulterated luxury in your dining room? How about a stunning Italian candelabra in silver and gold spiral metal for the centre of your table?

Wood

Looking for something delicate and more organic looking for your Scandinavian-themed living room? Look out for wooden candlesticks like a set of petite turned elm candlesticks from the mid-20th century.

Crystal and glass

For a truly magnificent statement chandelier, why not look to a crystal or cut glass candelabra from the last century. Browse our listings and you may be fortunate enough to find a piece like a Daum France 1950s three-armed crystal candelabra – a piece that is reassuringly weighty and as bright and beautiful as the day it was first made. Buy a candle holder in crystal or glass and you can enjoy watching the flicker of light from the flame dance upon the surface of holder and create your very own light show.
