Orrefors olympic candlestick
« on: June 20, 2010, 04:15:49 PM »
Hello all :)
Just bought a olympic candlestick at the local car boot. I was wondering if anyone knows which olympics they were made for? Also if you have any more info about them it would be much appreciated. Thank you :)

If my memory serves me right, this was for the Los Angeles Olympics in the 1980's.

US Customs would not let these items into the country as there was a copy right issue with the US Olympic
Committee.
