Overall: 5 7/8 x 3 7/8 in. ( 14.9 x 9.8 cm )
Dark amber blown glass candlestick; deep cylindrical socket on hollow stem with three tooled knops; hollow, slightly domed foot with pontil mark.
This candlestick was probably made in a Connecticut or New Hamshire bottleglass house, and proves that bottleglass houses continued to make refined forms from common glass batches (see publications).
