I D help please
« on: October 08, 2007, 08:51:47 PM »
I assume these are candle holders, they are white glass cased with clear stand about 7 inches and the foot is folded. Any ideas as to maker.
Thanks
Ian :huh:

At the risk of having to crawl away with a red face,  :) I would be surprised if they were just candle holders. They look much more like some sort of of special fruit or sorbet dish, designed for a specific purpose - maybe the bit that looks like a candle-holder was designed to hold some sort of wafer, or even flowers - a kind of table epergne for eating your pudding - pineapple rings and sorbet perhaps.

But this is pure conjecture and if someone can prove they are straight candle holders, perhaps the bowl was designed to catch the wax - an awful lot of it, I suspect.

Sometimes restaurants would commission special serving dishes for specific signature dishes,btw.

Maybe table centres with a flower decoration in the bowl, surrounding a candle, then?
