Striking pair of 'Festivo' candle holders or candlesticks with a mottled glass finish, as though freshly carved from glacial ice - a classic of Scandinavian design by Timo Sarpaneva for Finnish design company, Iittala.

Originally introduced in 1966, these four-ring candle holders are in the middle of a series of eight sizes making up the Festivo range, the sizes becoming progressively larger with the addition of another ring. They are such beautiful pieces - one of my favourite designs - like ice sculptures, tactile, with their multi-faceted surfaces constantly catching and reflecting light.

The Festivo candle holders are so popular they're still in production by Iittala today - however, only the early pieces were signed by the designer himself and this pair both have the 'TS' signature on the base.

Sarpaneva was a graphic designer and mixed media artist, working in metal, wood, textiles and pottery, but a master craftsman in glass, and drew inspiration from the craft heritage of his own family, as well as the icy landscapes of his native Finland.

His creative working relationship with Iittala began in 1951, when he won a design competition for engraved glass, and extended over the next 55 years - he is credited with designing the 'i' logo in 1956, which is the signature of the Iittala brand to this day.

Measures 7.25" high, 3" dia.

Excellent vintage condition - no cracks, chips or repairs.
