Sue, your plate doesn't look right at all...
Here is a link to a high resolution pic of a Kastehelmi plate on the laatutavara site: http://www.laatutavara.com/images/18524.jpg
And one of a big bowl: http://www.laatutavara.com/images/13407.jpg
Only round blobs.

I still think that neither of the small candleholders is Nuutajärvi, though 8)

 ???

That matches my candle holders and a blue ashtray I have.
So, if the one with different drop shapes isn't Nuutajarvi, what on earth might it be?
This isn't my area at all!

What sort of site is laatutavara? Is it official?
Cheers, Sue (M)

Laatutavara.com is an online shop for vintage Finnish glass -- and one of the best resources for research in this area, because they have about everything ever produced by the major Finnish glassworks for sale.
This is one of the reasons I doubt that the candleholders in question are Nuutajärvi -- not a single piece on that site.

Sorry, no idea who may have made your plate...

Sorry, better use >> this link, then it is quite easy to navigate around using the names of the designers / factories at the right, or the search function...

There's one candle holder in Iittala/Nuutajärvi Kastehelmi series - it is the cone like one that you can turn around and use as a vase.
There's also a candle cuff and a very small plate you could use as a candle base.
Since Iittala began to reproduce Kastehelmi around 2010/2011 there's a new votive holder in this series.
But; candle holders like the one's that started this discussion, I don't think so. There are picture's of them with Cascade stickers. There are a lot of other items around easily thought to be Kastehelmi. It seems the kind of pattern was very popular.

Here's a little info. :)  https://secure.iittala.com/web/myiittala/130

Thank-you everyone for your comments and research.

Interesting px thank-you, I noticed in that blog they conject that the range had 25 pieces at it's most extensive, but only describe about 13 or 14 pieces and 13 are in the diagrams.

Rocco, I had a quick look at the online shop, but I don't think it can be taken as proof something never existed simply because it's not in the shop albeit a well respected shop. I did see these for sale though :

Also quick reminder of the 20th Century Glass shop which is also a well respected shop still carries these in it's encyclopedia, once again I agree this is not proof of anything.

Onwards with the search.
