Iittala Festivo Candlesticks help please.
« on: October 02, 2008, 05:45:12 PM »
Hi All, I have 2 Festivo candlesticks, they are more or less the same size but one is squarer on the rings and the TS is not the usual TS it is more squiggly (all the ones I have seen before have been a plain capital T)and also the top ring is a lot smaller..another thing on both of them is if you look just below the second ring down there is what looks like a join, any thoughts please, thanks, Sue

Are you talking about the one on the right of the first pic Sue?  It does look a bit wonky, doesn't it?  I think the Festivo candlestick has a pretty small hole at the top for the candle too.  That one just looks a bit malformed all over to me.  However, I'm not aware of any fakes (apart from one I had years ago that was pretty obvious and had a yellow tinge to it)...so it's most likely fine.  I can see why you're questioning it though.

Thank Ivo for the reply, Max yes it is the one on the right, the join on the second ring is slightly out about 2mm, that is also the one with the squiggly engraving, I also bought this one at the same time which has obviously been repaired badly and am wondering if they got into a muddle repairing them

Are all the Festivo candlesticks signed? I have been seeing a few of what looks like these candle holders, but  unsigned, so  I have refrained from purchasing as I am unsure if they are the real thing or not.
