Wonderful Hanova of Pasadena small candle holder with curled handle. Orange mottled bubble enamel on steel, likely made in the 60s-70s. Hanova is known for their striking enameled dishes, bowls, planters and candle holders. We have seen this style of Hanova piece labeled Brutalist", referring to Brutalist Architecture, but we don't think this an accurate classification.
We are fairly certain about this piece being from Hanova, but it doesn't have its original sticker on the bottom. Hanova pieces are 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 orange bubbles on the surface of the candle holder. Pattern also appears on the bottom of the item. Would make a great centerpiece in a mid century modern living room.
No damage that we can see, though it is sometimes difficult to tell with Hanova items because of the nature of the enamel.
Measures approximately 6 1/4 inches across and 2 1/2 inches tall at the handle
