Pair Libbey Cut Glass Candlesticks
A lovely, simply cut pair of glass candlesticks with etched Libbey mark on top of each foot. Beautiful clear glass with interior tear-drop. Panel cut sides, faceted knop below socket, star cut base.
An example is shown in Toledo Museum of Art "American Glass 1760-1930" Vol. II, p. 710. They note some discrepancy with dating their example, so will date this anywhere from 1905-1920.
These came to me with metal candle inserts. Whether original or not, I can't be certain, but I will include, as they may be useful.
Size: Approximately 10" high, base diameter 5". Note there is some difference in width of shafts (likely due to hand-blown nature).
Condition: Excellent. Inserts dented (one more than other). Some slight roughness can be felt around edge of base. No other chips, cracks or repairs to glass.
Note that I try to be conservative about condition descriptions, carefully noting any flaws. Of course, with antique items, there will be some signs of usage, and/or manufacturing defects. But overall, my customers have always been pleasantly surprised upon receiving their items, and of course, I would expect a return if I happen to miss anything.
