I finally got to the M-K catalog as well.  (Cool site!)  That 1072 pattern does have the treatment of the joint treatment between the sections that I have seen on that pattern stick attributed as Baccarat.  I've probably crossed my limit of informed speculation.  

Mine are clear, and I still believe mine to be Fostoria for now.  Wanna swap candle sticks?  Didn't think so.  ;D

Alison, were you able to ID your candlesticks?   I happened across a candlestick book that talked about this mold shape with four makers, Baccarat 'Swirl', Fostoria 'Colony', McKee 'Ray', and Kemple 'Twist' or 'Swirl'. 

The Kemple has three nub footings added.  Not what you have but is what I have here finally identified.

So if you haven't positively identified already yours then one not yet discussed earlier in the thread is McKee 'Ray'.  McKee certainly did some early vaseline glass and they did sticks in that pattern but I don't know if they did those sticks in vaseline.

Good luck,
-Buck
