iittala ‘Festivo’ candlesticks, 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 candlestick holders come in 1 ring [as in my image] up to 8 rings- and were designed in translucent and blue glass. [Incidentally, for the stylists amongst you- those are Ikea candles being displayed. Just saying.]
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. All pieces are in perfect nick.
This collection is for sale: $AUD115
