Dansk glass, I have 2 candle holders, very similar to ones I had before by Sven Palmquist, the more I look at the very tiny etchings, I think they are JQ, did Jens Quistgaard make these? I am completely baffled, the letters are in a kind of triangle, looks like a J then one above, then I think Q,, Please help help before I lose my mind

A photo of the mark might help - someone might recognise it.

Do you know they are Dansk? If so then Jens Quistgaard was a major designer for them for all sorts of stuff

Quistgaard was, in fact, co-founder of Dansk Designs, back in the early/mid 50s. (Edit: 1954)
If these do turn out to be by Dansk, then they should be shifted to the main forum, as it was an American-based company that outsourced glass production to various factories around the world.
