Title: Iittala Festivo look-a-likes are they Orrefors
Post by: sueglass on October 08, 2008, 01:46:24 AM
Are these Orrefors?, similar in design to the Festivo candlestick. Thanks Sue, thought I once heard something shorter and stumpier reffered to as a top hat.

Hi Sue,
These candlesticks were made in Taiwan. I have seen a few with the "Made in Taiwan" label still attached.

Have a look at some properly labelled Candlesticks at an "antique / bric-a-brac" shop.  The original ones usually have a TS scribed in the base but it may take careful inspection to find it.  The second thing to notice is that genuine ones are NOT round, rather lens shaped in the centre bulges.
