This Viking art glass Patio Lite (candle holder) is 5" high x 4" in diameter and weighs 14 ounces. It is crackle glass and the Viking color is "Spring Green". It was part of Vikings "Epic" line, made 1971-1984.
I walked to a local arena and got my second Covid jab today so decided to stop at a thrift shop on the way home and found this little Viking glass candle holder which had no price tag on it. I know the owner and we hadn't seen each other for awhile and he very kindly gave me a price and discounted it twice before I said a word.
I have been looking for one of these for a few years. I was in another thrift shop several years ago and they had several pieces of what I thought was Viking glass, but I wanted to check my reference books first, did so, verified it was and went back to get one of these and another piece but all of it had been sold. This is the first time, since, that I have come across another one "in the wild". There was a very interesting pottery vase that I liked, too, but didn't get, so may go back for that tomorrow.
