To celebrate the anniversary of Finnish independence, two candles are placed in the windows of those who live in Finland. However, it's a tradition anyone can partake in anywhere in the world, and this iittala Kastehelmi candeholders are the perfect set is the perfect set to use. The emerald hue captures the Finnish forests, the part of nature Finns hold closest to their hearts. It's also a beautiful color to use for the holidays and beyond with its verdant glow. The jewel tone is especially stunning on Oiva Toikka's Kastehelmi (Dewdrop) design, named after the bubbled detailing on the pressed glass. Pop tealights in a few of these to line up along a windowsill or down the center of the dining room table for timeless ambiance.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpaneva in 1956 and inspired by his “i-line” range.

I received these free along with my order as part of a Christmas promotion and I'm so glad I did. They're nicer than I anticipated. Good solid weight, rich color and appealing design. I put them on the windowsill over the kitchen sink and put in some battery-operated votives (so I don't have to supervise a flame). They lift my mood during these dark winter nights and will be back on my windowsill every Christmastime. Great promotion!

Warm, wonderful and cozy. I bought 3, one for myself and 2 as Christmas gifts. The pocket is perfect for my iPhone or actually anything I need handy. The pocket is big enough to stick your hands in for a quick warm up. I love it!
