Scandinavian? Votives

:shock:  Well, I think mine is very similar, but it seems to have a different base!  The ones Anne shows appear to have a deeper base, whereas the 'windows' on mine come down almost to the bottom.  Could it be a different version not shown in the catalogue?  Also, I seem to remember mine came with two different coloured plastic inserts - one red and one blue - in which to put the candle, so that you got coloured light through the windows.  However, these both eventually got 'singed' when candles were allowed to burn down too far, and were thrown away  :oops:  :roll:

There was also a similar "windows" votive made by Libochovice, which appears to have still been in production after 1990, height again 80mm, and a pattern number of 3813/080/P, placing it time-wise, for the design, as late 1970's or early eighties, Sklo Union production.
Will try to find a link for you shortly.
