Candlesticks - Part 5
CANDLESTICKS - Part 5
COLONIAL: These candlesticks are not often seen in the carnival glass world, even in marigold. Octagonal in shape, standing some 6 ½”- 9” tall, other colors known are clambroth and rare examples of purple and amber. This design is designated #41 in Imperial's catalog. Although not iridized, the pattern was displayed in the April 1929 Butler Bros. Catalog.
Sold for $90. on 3-08.
CHAMBERSTICK: This example was for many years, included in the late Eleanor Hamilton's miniature collection and sold in her March 2008 auction. We cannot name the manufacturer, but would venture to say that it was produced in clear glass and lightly iridized in an after-market application.
DIAMOND's #651: The Royal Lustre line was displayed in a Diamond Glass Company ad dated Dec. 18, 1924, inserted in the Crockery and Glass Journal. A mirror-like luster covered examples in this line, some found with a satin, multi-color iridescence having an onion-skin effect as stretch glass. Marigold, ice green, celeste blue, cobalt blue and true red were colors offered. Production of the line continued to 1926.
NORTHWOOD's #657 & #658: These are classified as stretch glass and not often discussed in carnival glass circles. These styles are shown in Harry Northwood - The Wheeling Years, 1901-1925. Blue opaque, Celeste/Sapphire, Ivory, Jade Blue, Olive/russet, Vaseline, Custard and Coral Slag.
U.S. GLASS #315 SPIRAL BELL: Among the extensive candlestick designs offered during the 1920s, they were advertised in the March 1924 Butler Brothers wholesale catalog in Rich Blue and Canary iridescent. Translated, those colors in carnival glass terms would be Celeste and Vaseline.
Dean & Diane Fry, 06/09
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth, who have set Your glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him?
For you have made him a little lower than the angels, and You have crowned him with glory and honor.
You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands; You have put all things under his feet,
All sheep and oxen----even the beasts of the field, the birds of the air,
and the fish of the sea that pass through the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth! (Psalm 8)
Pondering the majesty of God and the mortality of man, David may have been inspired to write this psalm
under the stars in the night sky, while tending his sheep in the fields.
