    Wondering if any of our resident pottery experts can tell me anything about this candle holder. I bought it at a neighbor lady's garage sale when I was a teenager in the 1980's, because I liked it and it matched my bedroom. :-) No idea where she got it nor how old it already was before she put it out in her sale. It came in very handy just a few years ago during an extended power outage, but other than that its mostly just sat around ever since without my ever giving it a second thought.

    After coming across it again in a box the other day, I remembered again how much I first liked it (the colors in its glaze really *are* fun!) and took the opportunity to clean the accumulated dirt/wax/etc (whadda mess?!) off. Noticed for the first time ever (since I never looked before, I suppose?) that its underside is stamp marked "MADE IN GERMANY" (twice) and also has the number "3040" hand (?) scribed into it. [+ a couple spurious grease-pencil marks?] Its base is about 5" across, and it stands about 6" tall.

    SO -- now I guess I'm asking y'all's help -- should I find it a new spot to live on one of the "good stuff" shelves, or just leave it mixed in with the rest of my 'general junk'?? <wink><giggle> THANKS IN ADVANCE for any further knowledge about it :-) :-) :-)

      Thanks so very much to fortapache and racer4four for hitting the <love it> button! :-) :-) :-) I'm kinda surprised that nobody seems to have recognized anything about this candlestick...??

      An additional detail I forgot to add, which isn't easy to see in the pics. Its base (and maybe the bottom of its stem?) appear to be hollow, at least to some degree. I cannot explain why it looks like at least part of its 'inside' is also glazed, while most of its actual bottom is not ... ???
