A beautiful vintage Scandinavian wall-mounted candle holder, handmade by Muurla, Finland. 
Circa 1980s or early 1990s vintage. Comes in its original box which states it was designed by Pertti Kallioinen. It maintains its original sticker, suggesting it was hardly used, and the original steel chain for hanging it on the wall (could be removed). 
It's a folded circle of moulded textured glass - the horizontal part holds one tealight candle and the upper vertical has a Scandinavian landscape scene with a barn and fir trees imprinted to the reverse. It has a signature of 'Kauko Makinen' which I believe is Pertti Kallioinen's alias. Typical Scandinavian icy textured quality glass, handmade in Finland.
Excellent unused condition. Original box is tatty. 23cm wide x 15cm tall - a larger size from the series (some are smaller). It could be used a wall-hanging or on a shelf without the chain. 
Price includes P&P to the UK. Tealight candle also included.
