Design Notes

The Hobart candlestick is an original Robert Welch design, from his 1961 Campden Designs range of cast iron pieces.

The cast iron range helped Robert break into new markets and sold internationally in large quantities. The tazza-shaped fruit bowl was especially well received in Denmark. Images of these had featured in the Decorative Art Yearbook 1964 and not long afterwards a letter arrived from design retailer Hagbarth Skjalm Petersen, who ordered two dozen for his shop in Copenhagen - Skjalm and Robert became, and remained close friends.

The candlestick and nutcracker were eventually renamed ‘Hobart’ when relaunched in the 1990s, after a small break in production, as a tribute to Skjalm whose first name was pronounced similarly.

Care & Need to Know

Caring for Cast Iron Products:
• Use a dry microfibre cloth, (dampened for more stubborn marks) and dried immediately after cleaning.
• Apply a small amount of mineral oil to avoid rust developing. Please remove any excess oil.
• Always avoid scouring with pads or abrasive cleaners as this will scratch the surface and encourage rusting.
• Ensure products remain dry and are not kept in humid conditions.
