    The light at the dining table was a matter that lay close to Estrid Ericson’s heart. During a radio interview in 1951 she commented that candle holders should be high, shining from above rather than below, not to cast an unflattering light on the dinner guests. Estrid Ericson designed this candle holder in brass with these thoughts in mind.

    Estrid Ericson began her career as a drawing teacher and pewter artist. But what really set her apart during her 56 years as managing director for Svenskt Tenn were her abilities as a producer and scenographer. Ericson never had an aesthetic programme mapped out, but she had an imaginative person’s perceptiveness for the many faces of beauty. Read more

  • Care instructions

    Unpolished brass will become darker over time from exposure to air. This change can be beautiful. If the surface is affected by water, grease such as fingerprints and candle wax, or by other corroding substances, it can eventually be damaged and more difficult to polish away. This can happen especially in a humid environment.

    Clean the surface with a soft cloth. For a deeper cleaning we recommend a gentle, non-abrasive brass polish. Avoid using brushes, steel wool, polishing cloths, sponges and the like since the surface of brass is sensitive to objects that can scratch. Also avoid lengthy contact with oxides that can cause permanent damage. To avoid water damage, keep surfaces dry with a soft cloth.

    Never leave candles unattended and make sure to blow them out before they reach the candle holder. Keep in mind that some surfaces may be extra sensitive to heat. Take extra caution if you are unsure of the qualities of the table top.

  • Sustainability and manufacturing

    Material

    Brass

    Brass comprises 65% copper and 35% zinc. It has long been called “poor man’s gold”. A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s brass products are manufactured at Humstorp Metall in Västergötland, largely from recycled brass. At Humstorp, they are constantly working on choosing the most environmentally friendly alternatives when purchasing. Waste is minimised throughout the manufacturing process and any waste metal that nevertheless occurs is sent to recycling. Furthermore, an independent solar power facility provides approximately 40% of the workshop’s electricity consumption.

    This is how the Globe Candle Holder is manufactured

    A large part of Svenskt Tenn’s pewter and brass range is produced by Humstorp Metall; these are products that require a meticulous approach and great craftsmanship.

    When the Globe Candle Holder take shape, the manufacturing process begins with brass poles being cut, drilled and threaded at both ends. Whole and half globes are attached to the pole through silver soldering, before the merged candle holder is polished, first by machine and afterwards by hand in order to reach all angles. The candlestick is turned from brass sheet, ground and polished. The round bottom of the globe is also turned before being drilled and recessed. After that, it is ground in several stages before finally being polished.

    Following quality inspection, the silvered brass variety of the candle holder undergoes surface treatment with a silver coating. Once all details are inspected and approved, the candle holder is assembled. The entire company of eight people is involved in different stages of the production process.
