Candlesticks - Part 4
CANDLESTICKS - Part 4
Vineland Flint Glass Works, Vineland, New Jersey created the Durand Art Glass Division in 1924, which resulted in the production of Durand Art Glass, rivaling Tiffany, Steuben, and Fenton's freehand art glass. Though little information has been found concerning the Vineland Flint Glass Works' general tablewares, several stretch glass pieces have been found with the Vineland paper label still attached. From these labels, three actual colors and several numbers which refer to mold and shape have surfaced. Their glass quality and colors were quite variable.
Plate #764. COLONIAL is accredited to the Old Gold, Amber Candlesticks by Vineland. They are 10?tall with a base of 4 ¼? The glass is significantly thicker/heavier than that of either Fenton or Northwood examples in the same basic pattern. History of the Vineland Flint Glass Works appears in: American Iridescent Stretch Glass by John Madeley & Dave Shetlar, Copyright 1998.
FLORENTINE: Fenton - Ice Green and White, along with Red are quite difficult examples to locate. This pattern is found in 8 ½?and 10?heights. Amber, amethyst, celeste, celeste/gold trim, Grecian gold, russet/olive, and wisteria are additional colors known in this design.
CUT OVALS: Fenton - is basically the Florentine pattern with cut-away ovals. They are found in 8?10 ½?sizes, with celeste, Grecian gold, marigold, red and vaseline as the color spectrum. Seldom available.
#249-Fenton: Celeste, green, Grecian gold, ice green, marigold, red, red/gold trim, white and wisteria comprise the color range in this pattern.
#649-Fenton: These candlesticks are seen in Fenton Glass - The First Twenty-Five Years. They are 10?tall, circa 1923.
FLUTE & RINGS #83
in Lavender by Duncan Miller-9 in. tall x 5 in. base.
FLUTE and RINGS: Six rings surround the base of the candle cups, and the base of these candlesticks produced by Duncan-Miller.
Candlestick in Marigold, probably 1920s
5 in. diam., stands 3 in. tall.
Very likely an example of 1920s production, this shiny marigold candlestick is not on record in any of our resources. We would appreciate hearing from any of our viewers who may have access to such helpful information.
