Here are a lovely pair of EAPG Candlesticks. Maybe I have too much imagination, but if you turn them upside down they could be little vases too. They I think they might be the same pattern as the compote I posted earlier - or almost the same. There are 3 pinwheels around the bottom. They all have some etching on top of the pressing, and the same little star in the middle of the pinwheel. Not exactly the same as the compote, as the etching is in between the pressing here - with what looks like additional little petals to the pinwheel flower. In between and above each pinwheel is the same 8-rayed star as the compote with 4 long rays N, S, E and W and then 4 shorter rays in between. Then there are long rays that surround each pinwheel and then bend together in between each of the stars, and then radiate up and out again from there to the neck of the candle part. Above a ridge there are fan shaped rays with small half stars around the edge. In the middle of each fan shaped set of rays, which is also directly above each pinwheel, is a pressed round bubble - 3 of them around the top. These do not appear on the compote. They are 6.5 inches high and 4 inches across the base and quite heavy. The small pitcher has 4 pinwheel stars around the base with a button in the middle of each. In between each pinwheel star is a V shaped pattern with diamonds in the bottom of the V and stippled in the top left and right with a button in the middle. Around the top is a band of purple colour and then gold on the edge. The purple colour is unfortunately wearing off. The pitcher is 4 inches high and 6 inches across including the handle - either a big creamer or a small pitcher of some other sort. Anyone know these patterns?
