Candlelight will look lovely glistening inside this desert-hued votive. Named Kastehelmi (dewdrop) after the bubbled detailing on the pressed glass, this collection was originally produced from 1964-1988 and brought back to celebrate Oiva Toikka's 50 year mark as a designer. 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.

I like these candle holders because they work well over multiple holidays and with different color schemes. They put off a nice golden glow.

A Golden Sparkly Glow!
When I saw that this color was called desert, I expected it to be more orange. I got the most pleasant surprise when I put a small votive candle in and it glowed GOLD!!! A most beautiful gold! It goes with my Christmas decor with the other red and green kastehelmi votives I have. Iâ€™m so thrilled about this color! I had no idea. This color is so beautiful for all year round. I got these on sale which I canâ€™t fathom why they would be...I think itâ€™s because people have the wrong idea about the actual color! People this is a sparkly gold glowing votive that you canâ€™t pass up! Itâ€™s goegeous and I love it!
