I selected this trio of 1889 Fostoria glass candlesticks. The Fostoria Glass Company began manufacturing pressed, blown and hand-molded glass and tableware in 1887 in Ohio and later relocated to West Virginia. They remained in business for nearly 90 years.
U.S. Presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower to Ronald Reagan ordered glassware from Fostoria.
I love wondering about the origin of these candlesticks – who originally bought them? Where did they use them? And, that’s the fun with antiques.
Yet, what made Mr. Cherry’s candlesticks sooooo 21st century was how he combined the antique candlesticks with blown-glass tapers.
You fill them with paraffin oil, which he can provide. And at $39/pair (any height) they make a perfect hostess or birthday gift. The recipient can put them in any candle holders they have.
