Hi All,

I was hoping someone may be able to provide some further information on this one.

It has its original sticker, which I gather relates to Iittala. I have seen similar pieces from their candlestick 'Archipelago Range', although haven't managed to come across this exact design. I was hoping someone could confirm if its is indeed from this range along with a date of production.

If it is indeed from the Iittala Archipelago Range, was this range designed by Timo Sarpaneva..?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Greg :)

The Arkipelago candlesticks were made in round, triangular and square versions, also in different heights but as far as I know in clear glass.  Here's a triangular example.

Yours I think are Arktia.

Hi John,

Just come across this identical one, under the Arktia Range.

Thanks again.

Excellent, different shapes colours and probably sizes for this design too.

You can end up with a lot of candlesticks.... ;D

Hi,

This one was particularly heavy for what it is, just over 1kg.

A little bit more info I came across, just for interest, apparently this range ran from 1985 through to 1997 when it was discontinued by Iittala.

Thanks all for your thoughts.
