I'm no expert in pressed glass, but I think this candlestick looks more French than American.
Possibly by Portieux or Vallerysthal is my opinion.
Hope this is of help,
All the best,
Marinka.

More glass than class!

Your picture cropped off the bottom of the candlestick, but if it sits on little tab feet then Marinka is correct.

I believe from what I can see of the candlestick that you have a Portieux "Carrie" candlestick.  They were made in 7", 7.875" and 10" in blue, green and white milk glass.
