Candlesticks in clear pressed glass, 17cm tall.

The body is in the form of a flattened diamond or lozenge with repeating impressed diamond/lozenge decoration. Each candlestick stands on four quadrant 'fishtail' feet.

ID, comments or suggestions, please?

A largish set of green uranium glass pieces in this pattern – pair candlesticks, hexagonal tray, 3 lidded pots, ringholder & atomiser.

(Permission for the re-use of these images on the GMB granted by algiebear).

The larger pieces show the pattern to be of diamonds and fans, and that the finials on the pot lids echo the ‘fishtails’ of the candlestick feet.

Attribution now, anyone?

Fred.

The green candlesticks don't look the same as the clear ones in the opening post.

You’re quite correct, Jayne.

I will add the photos of the green uranium set to the thread showing a matching amber tray at
http://www.glassmessages.com/index.php/topic,55877.0.html
with a link back to this thread.

I think I have photos of a set putatively matching the ‘fishtail’ candlesticks and will add them here as soon as I can locate them.

Fred.

Thank you, Jayne.

I've now actually managed to find the reference photos among my files with your help!

Fred.
