Pyrex Candleholders
« on: August 24, 2005, 02:08:15 PM »
I seem to be putting rather lame items on the board today - my apologies!   :oops:  

I've bought these candleholder/hurricane lamps things etched with 'Pyrex Corning'.  They seem...I don't know...oddly made for the purpose, in two pieces.  And in boring Pyrex laboratory style glass?!  

I can't find them on the net anywhere, so thought I'd see if anyone knew anything about them...and...is it safe to pop a candle in?  Goodness knows how you clean them afterwards!

Sorry for a boring post!   :oops:

History of Pyrex. I cannot guarantee it's accuracy.
http://www.locusarts.co.uk/history.htm

I never knew that Jobling made Pyrex.  :shock:

I think the JAJ mark stands for J. A. Jobling. I would imagine that the Pyrex items marked JP stand for Jobling Pyrex?
