This pair of crystal candle holders was produced in the early 20th century. We believe that they were made by an American glass company such as Libbey, Sinclaire or Pairpoint. There is no signature and the pattern does not lend itself to identification. They are 11 3/4 inches high and the diameter of the base is 4 1/4 inches. They are hand blown with a wide polished pontil on the base. The shape is elegant with six panels to the shaft. The engraved decoration reflects through the sides of the panels. There is an art nouveau feel to the stylized berries and foliage that ramble around the crystal. Condition: Excellent

This pair of candle holders was produced on the European continent in the early 19th century. There are no identifying marks with which to ascertain the origin or manufacturer. They are 6 ¼ inches tall and the base is 3 ¾ inches in diameter. The candle holders were assembled in 4 pieces of porcelain held together with a metal rod going through the center. There are panels with hand painted birds. Parts of the candle holders are painted to imitate marble and malachite. This type of faux stone painting is peculiar to a period of time and country.

This pair of porcelain vases was produced in England in the mid 19th century. We believe they were made by Locke Worcester, although there is no marking. They are 7 1/2 inches tall and 4 1/2 inches in diameter at the widest part. The porcelain is molded in high relief, imitating a silver vessel. There are cameos with busts alternating with cartouches containing three dimensional bouquets. The other side has ribbons and butterflies in a floral wreath. The flowers are hand applied in Irish Belleek style. Considering that this pair is probably 150 years old, they are in fantastic condition. There is probably a petal or leaf damaged or missing in a couple of places, but it is minor considering the delicacy of the entire decoration. One of the vases sagged a little in the kiln and is slightly crooked. At that time, it was difficult to control the production as perfectly as we do today with computers. Overall, this pair of vases is in excellent condition. (We had difficulty photographing the exact color of these vases. They are a terra cotta color. The first photo best depicts the color.)

This pair of glass candlesticks was produced in Europe. They are unmarked but we think that they are Bohemian, made in the 1920's. They are 8 3/4 inches high and the base has a diameter of 5 1/4 inches. The glass has a lead content and makes a ringing sound when tapped. They are hand blown and joined in four parts. They have pontils on the bottoms. The shape creates an elegant, sleek silhouette. It is sometimes difficult to know how old a piece of glass is so we take clues from the style or how much wear is on the bottom edges. There is sufficient wear to the bottoms of these candlesticks to know that they were not made in recent years. They have an art deco look. Condition: One candlestick has a popped bubble in the glass that occurred in the manufacturing process. There are no other defects. This handsome pair of candlesticks is in excellent condition.

This pair of crystal compotes was made in England by Stevens & Williams around 1900. They measure 6 inches tall and the openings have a diameter of 5 3/4 inches. They are hand blown from clear crystal that varies from thicker areas to very thin. This type of crystal is often referred to as “rock crystal.” It imitated the mineral stone used by the Chinese. The bowls are expertly hand engraved and polished with ribbons and wreaths. There is a feather-like pattern at the bottom of the bowl that is thicker and somewhat puffy. Condition: Excellent. How wonderful it is that this delicate pair has survived undamaged to this day.
