Candlewick Glass: Colored and Decorated Linesby Myrna Garrison
The beautiful glass pattern Candlewick was manufactured by Imperial Glass Corporation of Bellaire, Ohio, from 1936 through 1984. Candlewick was made in many striking colors and with many decorative treatments - pieces that are avidly sought by collectors today. This beautifully photographed and carefully researched book enables collectors to recognize and identify all the documented colors and treatments for Imperial's Candlewick. Showcased are Candlewick pieces in colored, slag, black, and milk glass, as well as pieces that have been cut, etched, hand-painted, cranberry stained, and more. Many previously unpublished facts are included, such as new information on wood and glass combinations, experimental "Mother of Pearl" decoration, and a few newly documented decorators. Also shown are many photographs of shades, chandeliers, and table lamps not presented before. Using Imperial's factory records, catalogs, and price lists, the authors have assembled extensive background information on this wide assortment of elegant Candlewick. Values are included both in the captions and in an overall price guide organized by mold number. A must-have reference for Candlewick collectors and all who enjoy beautiful glass. A separate companion volume by the authors presents the crystal line of Candlewick.
