Please note: Because each is made from recycled glass, colors may vary and small bubbles and other unique imperfections may occur. See secondary image for examples of this variation.
Pieces from the special edition recycled glass collection by iittala make the perfect give for those who seek to reuse, repurpose, and recycle - as well as those who love one-of-a-kind treasures. Because each is made with leftover and mixed glass mass from the factory in Finland, the color may vary from cool blues to calming greens. Each is still made with a wooden mold and virgin materials to be of the same durable quality Finland is known for, just with a focus on sustainable style. Each is specially engraved to say "RECYCLED iittala" on the base, and even the famous "i" red logo sticker notes its recycled material.
Here, the glass is used to create a candle holder upon which light will beautifully glisten. Named Kastehelmi (dewdrop) after the bubbled detailing on the pressed glass, this pattern 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. It makes a exceptionally great little hostess or thank you gift.
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. The logo serves as a symbol of quality craftsmanship, timeless design, and thoughtful functionality. Many collectors ... More iittala
One, if not the most recognizable names in Finnish glass design, Oiva Toikka’s boundless imagination has taken glass art to new heights. Best known for his Birds collection for iittala, he brings mouth-blown glass creations to life. Each one is hand-crafted so every piece is an original and... More Oiva Toikka
Purchased as gifts for our adult children. They love candles and Scandinavian style (it's in the blood) so these should be well received.
Five stars to FinnStyle for honoring their sale when these sold out

It ended up being sold out but 5* to FinnStyle for honoring the sale for a different Kastehelmi candle holder (that I gave to a bunch of birthday guests as a party favor), and 5* to iittala for making a recycled glass product. Wish they'd do more than just special edition.

I purchased two of these candle holders and couldn't be happier with my purchase. They are a beautiful subtle color and with a candle lit inside, what a lovely sparkle. I was lucky to get them on sale!
Beautiful lit or unlit.

Beautiful Iittala quality, recycled
January 24, 2022
A great smokey grey/blue color from the recycled glass. I especially like it with a beeswax tea light; the warm, golden light is a lovely contrast with the grey glass. Same Iittala quality.
Beautiful for dining table

I love these. I gave them as gifts this year so that my friends may set beautiful holiday tables. Everyone has been thrilled!
Perfect for your dining table as you do not have to talk around them... they are perfect wherever you place them.
