We've looked and looked and looked. This stunningly iridescent blue candlestick is impossible to find anywhere! When we find Quezal pieces in a similar finish, the term, "Aurene" is often used. A bit of research led us to discover this is inaccurate. Much like the term "favrille" belongs to Tiffany, the term "aurene" belongs to the Carder Firm. We've included the brief bit we learned below, so those of you who are detail oriented, like us, can have a quick read.
"Quezal Art Glass: By Malcolm Neil Mac Neil Some of the most beautiful and alluring art glass made in America during the early part of the 20th Century was made by the Quezal Art Glass and Decorating Company. Often in the shape of blossoming lilies with brilliant gold interiors and colorfully decorated with floral and other motifs inspired by nature, Quezal art glass ranks right alongside the iridescent glass of Louis Comfort Tiffany and Frederick Carder. Quezal artisans created an extensive range of decorative and useful items, including vases, compotes, finger bowls, open salts, candle holders, and shades for lighting fixtures, which are equivalent in terms of beauty and quality of craftsmanship to Tiffany�s Favrile and Carder�s Aurene glass. In recent years, glass collectors have discovered anew the special charms and appeal of Quezal art glass, and collector desirability for this lovely glassware has increased dramatically."
This lovely, lovely piece is so resplendent in all its subtle and not so subtle shadings. Glimmer and glisten are great adjectives, don't you think? Besides...who can't resist something so BLUE?
