Anybody recognize this candle holder? - Ann Warff for Kosta

Does amybody recognize this candle holder please? It's 3 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall max. The 'fingers' spiral round heightwise and the glass is on the yellowish side of clear.

oooooooh I hate it when I can't find something. I am sure that this was shown somewhere in some thread on this board, but can I find it, NO! It was a picture of an ad for Kosta featuring this candleholder. If anyone has a better memory than mine, HELP. Thanks Terry

Phew (wipes brow) I eventually found the post you were referring to Terry. The link to the advert has long since been reused, but guess who had this candle holder and its big brother sitting and "gathering dust" on his shelf :shock:  :D and in his photo album! I take it the advert identified them as Kosta, any idea of age please?

Here is a picture of the three I have. The small one is the only one with a lable, very small in blue and white and just says Made in Sweden.
I thought I had saved the pic of the ad, but can't find it or any other info. Maybe someone else can help. Terry

Yes, the advert identified them as Ann Warff for Kosta. I thought I had kept a copy of the advert as well but I cannot find it anywhere and the copy on the site I found it on has gone now.  :cry:

Can anyone confirm or deny that this is from the same series please?  This one is a candleholder rather than for a tealight, and it has 8 "prongs" and the base looks more cylindrical than does Christine's version.

Seen them in a few different sizes, some on quite tall bases and with longer 'prongs'. This one still has it's label.
