HOBART ROBERT WELCH. I believe the cast iron candlestick (the Hobart) was designed by Robert Welch in 1962. Other designers adopted this motif of stacked discs or flanged patterns in the 1960's - 80's ( Carlton Ware and Gouda Flora). Ronald Stennett-Wilson also stacked disks in his Sheringham glass candlestick design (1967). Timo Sarpaneva designed his Festivo candlesticks for Iittala in 1966. There is also a cake plate or stand. I still have not yet found one.
