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 six defining rings, standing at 9-1/2" (245 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

This is my second set of Festivo candleholders. The first set belonged to my in-laws. I have three step-daughters who will inherit them someday! I was so pleased to purchase them â€˜on saleâ€™. The packaging was great and shipping was free and fast! Please please please find the Festivo pegged round candles for them! Unless I order them from UK or FI I canâ€™t find them!!

I love this design and it is especially striking in the taller versions. Looks wonderful as a grouping with other heights as well. Classic and unique.
