Hello aflint

I have some good news and some bad.

The good news is you can stop looking.

The bad news, seems no one knows who made them.  :-[

I have taken a picture from my 20th century candleholder book.

That was quick!

Thanks so much for sharing the info you have. I've seen this piece go by here and there more than once and this time I was determined to find out anything more that I could. I'll share your post with the owner of this particular stick.

pressglas-korrespondenz # 2008-1 reached me today
attached was a catalogue of
Rheinische Glaswerke Weber & Fortemps mbh SINDORF (Germany) 1935
on page 14 we see a candlestick holder similar to yours, but very much more Art Déco, the center stem is straight, but the base is same and it has got two 'handles' too  ::)

Can some other reader of PK give further hints, please?
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Pamela, that sounds like the Chippendale candlestick! http://glassgallery.yobunny.org.uk/displayimage.php?pos=-603
