    This is a Boyd 4" diameter Single Light Candlestick in the Wildflower/ Forget Me Not pattern. I can't find a Boyd one online but the replacements.com site has one of the original Degenhart ones in blue. Boyd bought the moulds from them and this one has the Boyd capital B in a diamond inside four lines indicating a date of 1998-2003. As you can see it really glows under UV and it continues to surprise me they were still making Uranium glass at this time.

      the original EAPG pattern for this was #140 Wildflower by Adams & Co. c1880s; guessing this is possibly a modified berry bowl. can find more online using the Wildflower or Wild Flower pattern name...
    2. TallCakes TallCakes, 9 months ago
      or possibly modified sugar bottom as used for the Boyd candy dish:

      Thanks TallCakes, I've found some Adams pieces with this pattern online and also some by Wright Glass.
    4. TallCakes TallCakes, 9 months ago
      yes, Wright also reproduced some of the forms. Can't seem to find who Boyd sold their moulds to. It's possible pieces may reappear on the market without marks some day...
