I got these candle holders a few years back from my mother. She got them in Germany. This is all I know about them. They appear to be pressed glass, and I believe they are Victorian. One has a lion's head.

Thanks for looking:)

    your very welcome darling!!

    you're welcome; most like the bobeches and prisms were added separately as they are a match, and the candlesticks likely weren't originally sold with them. They are both very nice.
  13. freiheit freiheit, 9 months ago
    TallCakes, you are correct. They prisms come off. But I always thought they belonged together:) I guess I was wrong.

    on closer look maybe they are both Brockwitz. Check the lion motif with #8184; the 3rd on in 1st row of this 1915 Brockwitz catalog. Also check the bobeche design on page 131; maybe #8123:

    TallCakes, you are amazing! I have no idea how you figured out what my candleholders could be. I must admit, though, that all of these patterns make my head spin. To an untrained eye like mine all of the patterns look the same. Turns out I was wrong - they are not Victorian but rather from a later time.

    you are very welcome : ) 1915 is typically considered as close to the end of the Victoria Era, at least when it comes to considering EAPG anyway. These are very nice candlesticks!
