The Hobart candlestick is an original Robert Welch design, from his 1961 Campden Designs range of cast iron pieces. This trio of candlesticks is made up of a Hobart Candlestick Large, Hobart Candlestick Medium, Hobart Candlestick Small and a set of three suitably sized candles.
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.
