Candlewick, one of the most popular lines of glass produced by the Imperial Glass Corporation of Bellaire, Ohio, was introduced in 1936 and manufactured until 1984. Today this pattern, made in crystal and many lovely colors, attracts avid collectors of fine glassware. In this beautifully photographed and newly revised book, nearly every item in the crystal line is shown and discussed. The authors have carefully researched Imperial's factory records, catalogs, and price lists to assemble extensive background information on these exclusively crystal Candlewick items. Organized in easy-to-use categories, the book covers place settings, serving pieces, sets, and miscellaneous items such as ashtrays, candleholders, compotes, and vases. This expanded second edition includes additional photographs and original factory material. To further help with identification, undocumented pieces, reproductions, and similarities are shown as well. Measurements for all of Candlewick's stem and tumbler lines are included, as well as many new facts. Newly updated values are included in the captions and in an overall price guide organized by mold number. This book is an essential reference for Candlewick collectors and all who enjoy beautiful glass.
A separate companion volume presents the colored and decorated lines of Candlewick.
