Festivo or Fake-stivo
« on: March 17, 2012, 10:34:52 AM »

(So glad GMB is back!)

Found these two 'Festivo' style candle sticks. Both differ from those found on the Iittala website. The bigger looks Ravenhead-like, the smaller I don't know. Slightly yellowish glass.


Images are profile, top view and base view.


Thanks for any help and comments on this question.

As thought. Any ideas who made them?

I think some are found with Made in Taiwan labels

The one on the left looks quality (more on that later) and resembles some Davidson in texture, even Ravenhead and has a feel of the better Ravenhead stuff.

However, my doubts about the quality came about whilst using them. One exploded when a candle burnt right down into it.

The interesting thing about the bigger one is that it is made to take 2 types of candle. A candle stick and a ball candle. I'm sure this was a way to say to Iittala - we're not ripping you off, we're improving!
