I have one of these (somewhere) and although it is "inspired" by Finnish design, it may not be so. I think it was made by Oberglas or Joska or one of the smaller Swedish works. The crystal quality is quite good but the item lacks definition - so I don't think it is top of the range...


That's interesting Ivo - cheers for that - I'll have a look at some of the Swedish manufacturers now - it makes sense as I've not found it on any of the Finnish sites.  Thanks also to Della for checking in your books :-)

Hi Pip

I don't think your candlestick is designed by Timo Sarpaneva. I looked through my books also.
Hopefully you find out someday who designed that.

Awww thanks for looking Marika!  No I agree it's not TS - I'm going to explore the Swedish makers now as Ivo suggested.  I'll post back here if I find out anything.
