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 five defining rings, standing at 8-1/2" (215 mm) tall. A stainless steel insert is included, allowing it to hold one taper candle.
Use only taper candles with a maximum height of 12" (30.5 cm)
Care: Hand wash only

My brother received my mother's collection of Iittala Festivo candle holders after she passed away. I decided I loved them so much I wanted my own collection. I'm thrilled to say I just added #7 to my collection! (A Birthday gift to myself!) I was blessed to have my brother visit me from out of state over the 4th of July holiday. He was able to see my collection while here and loved it! I would LOVE to have 2 of each size; almost there! A very beautiful and sentimental collection!!!
ProsVery eye-catching and many different ways to display.
