60s Nordic glass

iittala candlestick holders & Kosta Boda terrieriittala ‘Festivo’ candle holders, made in Finland 1966
Kosta Boda Terrier sculpture, made in Sweden c1960s

Continuing my new love affair with retro Nordic glass, here are two pieces from the 60s.

The candlestick holders were designed by Timo Sarpaneva. The candle holders come in 1 ring [as in my image] up to 8 rings- and were designed in translucent and blue glass. Again- the candles are from Ikea [to continue the Nordic theme.]

The Airedale terrier – designed by Bertil Vallien, was part of a ‘Zoo Line’ series of sculptural decorations. Sold as a paperweight or as a piece of stand-alone sculpture, these pieces are now quite collectible. Just saying.

The beautiful chunky glass looks fantastic next to a window, or as a table centrepiece.

This collection is for sale: $AUD115
