Default grossdeutschland candlestick

Hi guys, i have this candlestick, and it isnt my area, so i know nothing about originality or if it is a fake like i assume it is.

Maker mark is FW Qvist that also made german helmets apparently.

Anyone knows when its from ?

I think your assessment is spot on. Enlargement of the GD shows it is a very amateur engraving job and notwithstanding that, probably some eastern European hump job from the 90s.

I would find it hard to believe that GD or any other unit for that matter would feel the need to engrave their unit emblem on a candelabra that is going to sit on a table in a mess hall without much attention being paid to it other than the fact that it's a candle holder.
