It is difficult to find American Brilliant Cut Glass candle holders, and to find a matching pair is especially difficult. These are two beautiful examples. Each features a flared cup which is fluted (or paneled). Below the cup is ball faceted in a gemstone pattern. The stem is cut into 6 panels; the edges have large and small beading cut into them. Another, narrower, faceted ball rests just above the base which has a 32 point star cut into it. Inside the stem is a long teardrop. These are truly gorgeous!
This comes from the estate of Phil’s mom, who was a passionate collector of American Brilliant cut glass and other fine art glass.
SIZE: Height is 9 5/8”. Diameter at the base is 4 3/8” and at the top from rim to rim is 2 5/8”. CONDITION: These candle holders are in excellent condition. We do not see any chips or cracks in the glass. There are scratches on the base from use.
These would add elegance to any cut glass collection.
