The candleholders in this beautiful book epitomize twentieth century glassmaking at its best. Showcased are candleholders with exquisite engravings from the Brilliant Cut era, rich colors and detailed silver and gold overlays from the Roaring '20s, elaborate etchings from the Depression era, and modern styles from the United States and Europe. Details of cuttings, etchings, engravings and decorations help to identify pieces by Hawkes, Hoare, Libbey, Pairpoint, Sinclair, Steuben, and more. Beautifully photographed and thoroughly researched, this book is a must for all candleholder collectors. Price guide included.
