Circa 1937 - 1945 this pair of Heisey Crystal Kohinoor candelabra's was designed by Walter Van Nessen. The pattern was named and designed after the Kohinoor diamond with a glass replica of the diamond nestled under the center arch of each candelabrum. Now that was not an easy candelabrum to produce. The Hawkes Floral & Fern cutting is located under the hand polished foot of each as well as along the central arch. The Hawkes logo is clearly etched under the polished foot as well. These candelabras are 10-1/2" (W) , 5" (H) and 5" (L) & 3-3/4" (W) at the hexagon shaped foot. The prisms are "D" Crystal prisms - 1-1/2" (L) and the bobeches are 2-1/2" square and are made to fit securely over the multi-sided candle cups. Each candelabrum has 14 prisms and 2 bobeches. Condition of each candelabrum as well as prisms & bobeches are excellent without chips or cracks. Considering their age these candelabras were given lots of TLC even when used. Generally Kohinoor was not marked with the Heisey Logo and these are no exception.
