This new edition offers updates to the most popular pattern made by Imperial Glass. Candlewick was made from 1936 to 1984 and offered a large variety of pieces for any type of setting. Collectors will delight in all the beautifully photographed pieces.
The book is divided into three sections for ease in finding each type of item. Part I offers the background of this pattern along with the steps of making the glass. Part II has a list of the pieces made by putting them in four categories: place settings; serving pieces; sets and miscellaneous. The place settings are composed of the items that you would use at your setting: stemware; tumblers; cup & saucers; bowls and plates. Serving pieces include bowls; butter dishes; cake stands; condiments; pitchers; platters; relishes and trays. Sets list consoles; decanters; salad sets and punch sets. The miscellaneous groups has baskets; bells; candleholders; compotes; and vases. Part III provides a wealth of information that includes undocumented items; reproductions; similar items and rarities.
