Fleur de lis candlesticks
« on: October 07, 2018, 04:15:39 AM »
I bought these but i'm having a hard job locating the factory that produced them. It did have a ring holder or something that seemed to go with it but i just left it. Any ideas?
One day I shall come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then, there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine. William Hartnell

There is a fleur-de-lis trinket set pattern on Anne's Glass Trinket Sets website at
http://www.glasstrinketsets.com/Gallery/thumbnails.php?album=45

It is designated Mystery #042 as it's manufacturer is still unknown, but your candlesticks differ is several important details compared to those from Mystery #042.

The fleur-de-lis is a stylized lily flower that is used as a decorative design or motif, especially in French heraldry, and it may be that the fleur-de-lis sets are of French manufacture.

Hi TC, now those are interesting! The base shape of yours reflects the shape of mystery #042 tray which the usually seen round based ones don't.
