Wonderful Hanova of Pasadena large candle holder with curled handle. Yellowish brown mottled bubble enamel on steel, likely made in the 60s-70s. Hanova is known for their striking enameled dishes, bowls, planters and candle holders. While the pattern of enamel bubbling on the surface of the ashtray is very reminiscient of other Hanova of Pasadena pieces we’ve seen, it doesn’t seem to match the style exactly. We have seen this style labeled Brutalist“, referring to Brutalist Architecture, but we don’t think this an accurate classification.
We are not sure about this particular ashtray, but we are leaning toward this being from the actual Hanova company. Hanova pieces were rarely marked directly on the enamel – they mostly had stickers which were peeled off afterwards. That, and the fact that there’s not a lot of available information about the company, leads to a lot of confusion on identification.
Wonderful random pattern of brown bubbles on the surface of the candle holder. Pattern also appears on the bottom of the item. There is a small flake on one side of the enamel, but it is difficult to see it with these Hanova items because of the nature of the enamel. Bottom has some crackling where the handle attaches to the dish. Measures approximately 8.5 inches across and 3.5 inches tall at the handle. Would make a great centerpiece in a mid century modern living room.
