Great candlestick, very reasonably priced

“This is a beautifully designed candlestick which looks great in almost any environment. The price is very reasonable. Service was excellent (speedy and clear) for my one query, and shipping was super-fast. I recommend it unequivocally!”

Adding to what is now becoming a Robert Welch Collection

“When I was seventeen, my parents took me to London on a holiday; they were always very much interested in design and as a result we visited Habitat, where they bought a Robert Welch cast iron pepper mill. Apart from looking fantastic, it turned out to grind pepper really well and consequently it used to be on their dinner table for the rest of their lives.
I recently inherited the mill and discovered the designer’s name on the underside.
After a search on the internet I found out that a number of Robert Welch designs were still produced and I decided to buy two large and one medium-sized Hobart candlesticks.
They were delivered very fast (ordered on Monday and delivered in Germany on Wednesday) and they look simply marvellous. At almost sixty-four years of age I hope to have started a small Robert Welch collection, which my children in their turn will be able to enjoy.
As the elegant simplicity of the design and the (paradoxically) heavy solidity of the material make these objects look both timeless and modern, I feel sure both the pepper mill and the candlesticks will be cherished by future generations!”

My Mother's Vintage "Scandinavian Modern" candlesticks

“I inherited a treasured cast iron candle holder, that is one of a pair that my mother purchased sometime in the 1960's in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, USA. I've always loved the cool design and thought that they were Danish Modern or some 1960's Scandinavian design. I've been intending to give this candle holder to my daughter who has admired it,, so thought that I'd try to include some information on it. With the aid of a strong magnifying glass, I was able to make out enough of the remains of the label on the bottom to read "Made and Designed by Robert Welch, Chipping, Campden, England". I Googled that and Voila! I've discovered that I have one of Robert Welch's "Hobart" candlesticks. I still love it and know that my daughter will too. It is indeed a wonderful timeless design.”

Rather disappointed

“I have wanted one of the Hobart candle sticks for ages, so decided to treat myself with the recent discount. When it arrived, I was rather disappointed to find there was a large chip on the top of the candle holder. The overall finish wasn't very good either, as it looked "rubbed", so I probably wouldn't have kept it even if it hadn't been damaged. It was also very heavy to have to lug back to the Post Office to return.”

Reply from the Robert Welch Team, 9th January 2018

"We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your purchase. The Hobart range is produced from raw cast iron, by processes similar to the original 1960s production, therefore the finish does have a natural rubbed look."

“Beautiful classic design and very well made - I have a pair of these candlesticks and they look wonderful together! The candles ordered at the same time fitted perfectly.”
