I don't generally pick up amber colored candlesticks as they appear to be so common, however, these little pieces are marked and I purchased them with the intention of simply researching the maker, history, circa, etc. to increase my mental database. This started a very interesting journey as these simple amber candlesticks seem to have quite the history. I have not been able to track down the exact style - this site is as close as I found...
I can't imagine that these simple candlesticks are worth that much, however I am not finding anything even close on Ebay and several of the other glass catalog sites. It would appear that they were made around 1900's and from the town in France called Portieux.
Any additonal info?
