Short, bell-shaped 'mermaid' candlestick - ID, please?
« on: September 06, 2012, 05:20:27 PM »
A short, bell-shaped, candlestick in frosted peachy pink pressed glass.

 10cm tall, with the slightly scalloped base rim 11.5cm in diameter.

The body of the candlestick is decorated with a raised finely-modelled reclining mermaid.

ID, comments or suggestions, please?

So it is! Many thanks for your ID.

My first though was pressed glass + mermaids = Walther + Nymphen, but I was so blinkered by looking at the various trinket set pieces that I had forgotten that there were other bits in the pattern.
