Slim Stemmed Sticks — 1 — small amethyst candlestick
« on: April 29, 2008, 06:07:27 AM »
Images:-

Amethyst candlestick, solid stem, inside cylindrical then quickly tapering off to a point like a reshaped epergne flute, fire-finished rim, no pontil mark.

Stennett-Willson, Thrower, or who?   ... and which glassworks?   ... and date?   ... and pattern number/name?

Thanks for looking,

Hi Bernard,

This small one is similar to Stennett-Willsons 'Sandringham' candlesticks but the sconce looks about twice the normal length? example below...

I see all the others often on my travels and am pretty sure they're not Wedgwood...I've always thought they were modern lookalikes though cant recall seeing any with labels.

Martyn — Thanks.   Apologies for the lateness of this message;  I meant to thank you at the time but it slipped my memory.  :-[

I actually saw a boxed set of three at a bootsale last week like the ones in the center of your group photo. I had a look but there was no indication of who made them or where, just a plain box with fitted polystyrene liner....?
