I bought these in san francisco about 15 years ago. I paid maybe $20.00. they are not signed ( that i can see) and the shop i got them from had no history. Iv been searching and found nothing like them. Any Ideas on who, when, where ?

    Candle Holders? is that a hole in the middle, hard to tell from pics. Dave

    Yes they are holes

    Then they are Artb Glass Candle Holder, not paperweights. I will look around and see if I can find a maker. Dave

    They are match strikers, the matches sit in the center and are struck on the cutting around the center to light the match.
    have you tested them under a U.V light? by the colour it looks as though they may have some Uranium content.

    Wow, Thanks for the great info! I never would have thought that, I assumed because they were a set that they were candle sticks. No I have not tested them, but will now. I have a few that I suspect are uranium. I will let you know. And WOW again, Iv been collecting glass for so long and have never had such an open forum like this and this was my first posting! Thanks!!

    I think they are uranium or vaseline as some like to call it, you can tell from your photo with the sun on them ;-)
