Heavy 4 candle Scandinavian? candelabra - ID = Pukeberg
« on: October 18, 2009, 05:25:44 PM »
Hi,
Here's an unusual one. This is a heavy 4 candle candelabra in a very Scandy style but I can find nothing to compare it with. I have sort of assumed Pukeburg or Iittala but my Googling has not come to nothing. My other consideration was Walther or other German Glass producers but I could still find still nothing similar on the Web.
It measures 12" long and 6.25" long and weighs 1.7KG.

Thanks,
Bryn

Hi,
I have had a direct email telling me that the 3 "hanging hearts" on this piece may assist in determining it's source. No clue as to who made it though.

Yup... Pukeberg.

Also available in 2- and 3-candled versions.

I've not had a 'hearted' one myself, but it's just a variation on the mould that made this: http://www.zeitgeist-i.com/G-Sw-0007.html

Thanks a bunch Nic, :hiclp: I thought I was on the right track but I just couldn't find any info on the Net. Just as well for me that you could.

Seems the Uno Westerberg attribution needs crossing out - just spotted one with the hanging hearts bearing a Pukeberg label and a secondary label stating 'Design: Staffan Gellenfeelt'.

Googling brings up no further information on the designer.

I believe that it should read Staffan Gellerstedt.

Excellent - that makes much more sense. Typical eBay sellers, even when they have an original label they still get the information wrong!

Thanks for the correction.
