Cast textured candleholders - Swedish or Finnish?
« on: May 09, 2010, 08:48:23 PM »
I've a pair of these, and I know I've seen them before, but I can't for the life of me find the maker anywhere.

The texture on the side is quite remeniscent of Jorma Vennola's 'Kuusi' (Spruce) series for Iittala, but I can't find anything that matches. Likewise, it doesn't pop up in any of the Kosta Boda references I have.

Any help much appreciated.

Could it be Nybro?  May be worth checking :)

Cheers, Anne. Nybro hadn't even crossed my mind - I'll look into it.  :)

Did anybody ever find and answer on these as i have one too. Had assumed it was Iittala as the design on the sides is the same as a Iittala fish paperweight i was thinking of buying recently at a fair (unfortunitly didnt get it though)
would it be possible to move this over to glass, maybe get a result on it there?

I never found the maker, unfortunately.

Hi,

These look pretty close: Kosta Volcano

And just to confuse things  - I've seen a matching pair with Galway Crystal labels.  These might or might not be original to the pieces.  Might be worth contacting them?

Pukeberg is another thought.

Galway could be a possibility - they certainly did a tealight votive a few years back that was heavily "inspired by" the 'Snowball' votives by Kosta.
