Candle Holder.................Pukeberg or Kosta maybe?
« on: August 17, 2006, 04:15:39 PM »
Hi,

I wondered if anyone had come across one of these with a label and could help me identify it.  It weighs a whopping 1065g but it's only a little over 3.25" tall and the base is 2.5" in diameter (the body is much wider than that, but irregular) :

The bottom is almost flat but not smooth like Caithness bottoms :

Grateful for any help.

Cat

Kosta - I think the designer is Ann Wärff. Use it, it gives a lovely light....

Ivo - thank you!  It's not just having it identified - it's realising I'm starting to get it "right".  Thanks again Cat
