I don't believe it's a mark at all, but the way the glass naturally formed
Yeah, I've gotten to that idea. I must have wanted to believe it was a piece of Anchor. Now, it's off to pottery chop marks...
Thanks for the unfortunate confirmation, B.Bonnie.
but old and unique, I have something similar
Eh. For two bucks, I'll make the bet. I only saw a couple for sale and it said 'rare'. One was on pintrest. I'll hold my tongue about pintrest.
It's US, Art deco candlestick. 1920's, 30's. I had a set yrs ago and sold them. The maker is a more obscure one; diamond, US glass, Lancaster or something...
Sorry again no books with me.
No love. The pieces I see online are pretty much along the same description. None giving a maker. The hunt never ends.
Nope! It generally doesn't either! One of the reasons I love glass! I'm never board! lol
I am certain I did find maker on those though, So I'll just have to find em again!
Pinterest shows a pair of them on ebay for $9.99. One should be worth $3-4.00. You have the exact same information about it as they do, zilch. You might check Waterford crystal; they have similar styles, but not exact (that I could find).
Did you do the "ding" test for cystal?
Hello again, Tom,
I'm not sure why you gave my the valuation of my piece. I do not ask about a price because that is penultimate to why I'm here: get whatever information I can. Pricing my item is my business. I have one watcher on this. Just picked him/her up. There are 2:45 minutes left on the listing. I imagine the person is sitting back, having a laugh at the price. I'm A-Okay with that. Some people need a good laugh. It will sell or it won't. Then I'll move on.
I got more information in one post that I had before asking for help, from Vicki, on
This post is 24 hours short of being two months old, and three days short since the last post. By now, everything is taken care of.
Sorry I was late to the party on this one for ya, I simply forgot about it. ( See my last post) Hope you get a great price on them, I think they are awesome!
Just make a note for yourself for future reference, so you now know they are Westmoreland, if you find them again!
Good Heavens TOM! These are in no way, shape or form Waterford! I can "smell" Waterford at 200 paces! LOL I'm darn near as good on Fenton too! :)
But, I'll thank you for reminding me on these. Now that I am home with my books, I have found them again! They are Westmoreland "No.1015 Mission Candlesticks" 6 3/4" in. high, with a 3 1/2" hexagonal base. Circa 1910 to the 1930's. Made in Crystal and sometimes found in Cut! Book price listed is $20 - $30. Add 20 to 30% more ( if your very lucky) and have found them with cuttings.
This info comes from (imho) the very best book on Candlesticks, entitled "The Glass Candlestick Book" Volume 3 Kanawha to Wright, ID and Value guide. By Tom Felt and Elaine & Rich Stoer.
@ Scott - I think you've got it right on your Swirled blue, art glass single candlestick to. That being Blenko. I'm afraid I haven't got the versions 1 and 2 books by the above authors, so I won't be able to hunt for them here. ( I'm making a note to invest in those ASAP, as I've just blown my book $ for this quarter on two FAB books on Steuben, Frederick Carter, specifically. He was a TREASURE! Right up there with ole L.C. (Tiffany) hiself and even a contemporary of Lalique, (Rene) imho again! :)
Uh... '...Swirled blue, art glass single candlestick to. That being Blenko...' I understand Swirled blue but not the last bit.
The books are currently a financial hold-off. San Diego has great city and county libraries I can order books through. The library costs much less than buying the things.
Your description is spot on for Westmoreland. I changed the title of my listing. Thanks!
