Here's the candlestick I bought at Woking yesterday—it's dual purpose candlestick one way and a vase the other. I thought it may be from the Nuutaj√§rvi Toikka Kastehelmi (Dewdrop) range but wasn't sure. I found one this morning with an Arabia label  :D  , but does anybody know for sure? 7394127742

Here's a picture of the Toikka cube I mentioned in the twitchers thread. It's dated 1987, but it's not the limited edition one from that year.

Well, I am pretty sure your candlestick/vase is from Kastehelmi range by Oiva Toikka, produced by Nuutaj√§rvi/Arabia (but please don't ask me which label was used first or when they were exactly used).  

Kastehelmi range seems to be rather large and to my opinion quite unmistakable.  I have never seem or heard about any imitations either.

Regards,
TMaritta

Thanks tmaritta - I wasn't sure - the label on the ebay listing looked as if it could have been transferred from something else and this isn't a shape I'd seen before.
