Timo Sarpaneva originally designed Festivo as a wine glass for himself, with the goal of fitting an entire bottle into a single glass. The bowl and base were blown separately, and upon seeing the stems sitting on their own in the factory one day, Sarpaneva was inspired to turn them into candle holders. The now iconic design has the look and feel of icy crystal, paying ode to Nordic winter beauty. This iittala Festivo Candle Holder has four defining rings, standing at 7" (180 mm) tall.

Use only taper candles with a maximum height of 12" (30.5 cm)
Care: Hand wash only
