These five rectangular dishes, I think, were used as ashtrays. I would prefer to use them as individual butter pats, after dinner mint holder etc. I’m sure you can think of something to use these find pieces of glassware for. Candlewick by Imperial Glass is one of America’s most popular crystal patterns The repeating geometric forms that comprise the rims are indicative of the Art Deco influence on applied arts during the 1930s and 1940s. Imperial released Candlewick in 1936, and the pattern was very well received. Due to its unique design and history, Candlewick has become highly collectible. The pattern has been the inspiration for a number of books, fan clubs, and more. According to “Candlewick: The Jewel of Imperial” by Mary M. Wetzel-Tomalka, the story of Candlewick and the Imperial Glass Company is one that is steeped in history and the American ideals of entrepreneurship, hard work. The Imperial Glass Company was founded in 1901 by Edward Muhleman, with production beginning in 1904. The handmade glasswares were sold worldwide and were usually made of pressed glass patterns. The factory located at 29th Street was labeled as one of the largest glass factories under one roof. The company's most famous product is their "Candlewick" series, which even has a street named for it in Bellaire.The company hit rough times in the early 1970s and was close to bankruptcy. Imperial was saved by Lenox and turned to general manufacture, but low demand eventually led to its closure in 1984.
