Candle stick holders
« on: April 16, 2006, 11:18:33 PM »
I have recently inherited four very heavy, crystal  candlestick holders.
 Each is signed on the bottom, but I cannot make out the signature. 
 It is either, JR Louis, JB Louis, JS Louis or the last name may be Houis or
 Houix. The person that I inherited them from was in her 90s and a world traveler. A local jewelry store told me that they were of fine quality and in perfect condition.  They, however, could not make out the signature.  They appear to be Scandinavian. I would like to know more about these items but I cannot research them without the correct name.  Can you give me a starting point?
 I would be happy to e-mail a photograph of them.
 Thank you.

Completely unlike any of the St Louis signatures.

Is there anyone out there that has ever seen the signature on these candleholders?  I'd really like to know more info...possibly interested in selling.  Thank you :D

It could take a while, some of the experts are not frequent visitors.

They look at a lot more French to me than they do Scandinavian, only an opinion though.  The signature could read *something* Buis to me, but I can't find anything about that name...apart from Carre de Buis which doesn't appear related.

Don't recognise the sig but the style is Daum / Sèvres 1960s.  Maybe the Louis part is the model rather than the maker - and CJR could be Claus Josef Riedel who was never averse to a tribute.... in the best possible taste of course.
