I love this set but would really like to know if anyone recognizes the pattern. I realize its hard to see but hopefully someone will know. Thanks in advance for your help.

    The blanks are not Fostoria's Baroque, though offhand I don't recognize them.

    The candleholders are shown in a New Martinsville Glass Co. catalog from the late 1930s. The caption reads "4457/401 C/abra" (the letters are an abbreviation for 'candelabra' and the numbers are the pattern number).

    The bowl shown with them in the catalog is not the same pattern as the candlesticks, and it is also not the same pattern as your bowl. Two possible explainations:
    1) New Martinsville paired different bowls up with different candlesticks to suit their needs and it's just not shown on the catalog I have.
    2) Another company could have made the bowl. It was common practice for decorating companies to buy 'blanks' from the various glass companies, decorate them, and sell as their own product. They may have combined pieces from different manufacturers.

    The type of decoration on your set would have been referred to as a "rock crystal cutting" when it was sold.

    Safe to say it is from the mid -1930s to mid-1940s time frame.
