'Lighthouse' uranium candlestick - VSL?
« on: July 25, 2012, 04:22:07 PM »
'Lighthouse'shaped candle stick in green uranium pressed glass. 6 inches high.

Ebay seller has queried Val Saint Lambert (Belgium) as VSL has candlesticks in this basic lighthouse shape (see www.pressglas-pavillon.de ).

Opinions, IDs other pieces?

Frederick, I've got one of these in non-uranium green and strongly doubt VSL - this is definitely not VSL-quality.

Gut feeling is quite recent production and not part of a set of different shapes/items.

Thank you, Pamela.

I've passed on your opinion to bazza131313, the original image 'donor'.

I'd say you're right, Jayne. :)

Jayne, well spotted! Was now able to find it in my collection - it already had found its place in VLG corner long ago...  :-X
