Inspiration for the iittala Nappula Short Candle Holder came to designer Matti Klenell at the Nuutarjärvi glass museum, where he was drawn to the distinctive design of an interestingly shaped chair. Moved by the unique piece of furniture, Klenell set out to create memorable pieces of his own. This is the shorter of the two candle holders in the Nappula collection, allowing it to hold even a tall candle and still serve as a centerpiece that won't obstruct your view. The stainless steel has an highly reflective finish, and a felt bottom rest further stabilizes the piece. Fire is an element that has long brought us comfort, warmth and ambiance, and the iittala Nappula Short Candle Holder makes it that much more beautiful.
Holds most standard candles with a 3/4" diameter base.
First founded as a glassworks company in 1881, iittala is now a leading company in modern Finnish design producing a range of dinnerware, glassware and art pieces. You’d be hard-pressed to find a Finn or fan of Finnish design that doesn’t recognize the iittala logo, designed by Timo Sarpane... More iittala
This is a very well made candleholder. I love the shiny silver color. It has some nice 'weight' to it. I have this particular style of candleholder in many colors. This silver obviously goes well with any of the other colors. You can not go wrong with getting this and getting the taller one to go with it!!
Simple minimalist candle holder

I had been searching for a single-candle holder with clean lines, to complement my Mid-century Modern furniture. This candle holder is perfect. It has a simple design and tactile appeal and the price is very reasonable.
