The quality of Fenton Glass is easily recognized in this pair of #848 Ruby Six-Petaled Glass Candlesticks. Harder to find than the more common nine-petals, these bowl-shaped candleholders each have six rounded petals and three narrow feet. Each slender foot is about 3/4-inch long and extends from a long leaf molded into the underside of the glass. Fenton’s Ruby color is an exquisite deep red shading to orange-yellow at the base.
Each of these candleholders measures 1-3/4 inches tall and 4-7/8 inches in diameter.
Made by Fenton Glass circa the 1930s, there is no mark.
One candleholder has a small inclusion within the glass from the manufacturing process near the bottom with a couple of nearby bubbles. The other also has a couple of bubbles near the bottom which popped in the making. This one also has a tiny, smooth, pinpoint nick on the edge of the rim. This is not readily noticeable. There is no other damage to these beautiful candlesticks.
I do have the matching 9-petal bowl which has a chip on the foot. Please email to inquire. I'm so happy you stopped by Maggie Belle's Memories! Please find us on Facebook for updates and fun information!
