Long shot - anyone recognize these pressed candlesticks?
« on: August 04, 2010, 02:39:38 AM »
I think they are probably early american pressed glass.  Just under 7" (18cm) tall.  

Seems to have a glass quality similar to some other pieces referred to as 'flint' glass.  How do I tell if something is 'flint' glass?

Thanks,
-Buck

If they're real flint they weigh a ton!! Flint glass is often used to mean colourless glass though,
