Cohr Danish Sterling Silver Pair of 3-Light Oil Candelabra

$ 2,075
  • Description
    Cohr, Danish, sterling silver pair of 3-light (oil) candelabra in Mid-Century Modern style with an exquisite flowing design, measuring 11'' in length by 7 1/2'' in height by 3 1/2'' in depth, weighing 27.3 troy ounces, and bearing hallmarks as shown.

    In 1860, a young goldsmith named Ditlev Madsen Cohr opened his workshop in Fredericia, Denmark where he made his living on the manufacture and sale of hand-forged silver flatware. In 1883 he passed away, and his widow led the business until the eldest son, the 25-year-old Carl Madsen Cohr, could take over.

    International recognition came after the World Exhibition in Brussels 1935 and Paris 1937 under the artistic direction of HP Jacobsen. Through the German occupation in 1940-45, Cohr survived by reclaiming old silver and attempting to work with other metals such as plated zinc, "bronze" and spoons and forks made of aluminum. During the 1950s, silversmith Hans Bunde’s designs were also crucial to Cohrs success and brought much recognition to the company’s name even today. The company closed in 1987.
