Vintage Fostoria - Luxemburg Crown Ruby Red Tri-candle Candle Bowl #2766/311 - Crowns-in-Crystal Collection
What a statement this piece makes! I do not see or feel any damage. No chips, nicks, cracks, stains, or scratches. There is only a minimal amount of bottom wear. This was taken great care of.
SIZE: 7-1/4" Across X 4-5/8" Tall - 4-3/8" Foot
This gorgeous round crystal Trindle Candle Bowl was manufactured, ca. 1963-1965, as described and pictured in the Crown Collection section, pages 247 through 249, in "Fostoria Tableware, 1944-1986" authored by Milbra Long & Emily Seate. Copyright 1999.
Another Reference: Page 50, "Collectible Glassware from the 40's, 50's, 60's, Eighth Edition" by Gene and Cathy Florence, Copyright 2006. My price is less than half of the $215 Book Value in Florence's book.
Fostoria called this color Ruby Red and it is red. What an eye-popping hue. I have tried to capture this brilliant color in my pictures. I hope I have, as this color is eye candy for sure.
This lovely three Candle display bowl is the only candle bowl made in the Crowns-in-Crystal Line. Fostoria Glass Company manufactured four different "Crown" styles in their Crowns-in-Crystal Collection. The one I am offering is the Luxemburg Crown, and then there is the Hapsburg, the Navarre, and the Windsor. The colors offered were Ruby Red, Gold, Blue, and Crystal. They were all offered sometime during the years 1961-1965, in substantial elegant crystal glass that Fostoria is known for.
This candle bowl is a hunk of elegant red crystal weighing 2 pounds 12 ounces.This centerpiece will look great no matter where you show it off, dining table, on a mantle, coffee table, just fill it with three candles and any decoration that suits the occasion.
I currently have listed the Windsor Crown tall covered candy jar "Chalice" in the Gold color. It too is stunning.
Thanks for looking, enjoy your day and don't let this one get away!
