Cambridge Diane – Etched Corinth Candle Holder, Unusual Piece in the 3900 Line

Cambridge used several lines for their lovely Diane etch; we showed the Martha sugar bowl in the last post and the stem 3122 before.  They also used the 3900, Corinth shape, for a few pieces, notably this candle holder, the 3900/74 trindle candlestick with the Diane etch on the round base.

It took me a bit of research to identify the line number for this holder; it is a little like the line 3500 Martha holder with its curlicues and extra bits of glass to catch the light, but Martha lacks the pierced center.  Here is the Martha holder for comparison – you can see how ornate this is.

Cambridge used the Corinth candle holder for other etches, including our favorite Rose Point, but you are less likely to come across it than the more common line 3400 shape with its pretty key hole.

We have the Diane etched Corinth candle holder listed here and it is on sale this week.

Cambridge Diane Etched Crystal – Plates and Dinnerware

Last post I showed off a newly acquired Cambridge Diane juice goblet and thought it would be fun to look at some of the other Diane etched pieces available.  Personally we have had very few pieces of this pattern in stock; we see it once in a while but it tends to be expensive, more […]

Fostoria Glass Coin Ruby Candle Holder

A Quick Look at Fostoria Coin Glass – Colonial Styling Reproduced

Colonial style was hot hot hot back in the 1950s and 60s.  Furniture was colonial, dishes were heavy with early American motifs, people hung old fashioned curtains and used rag rugs.  (My mom detested the style, thankfully.  We had the other hot style, Mid-Century Modern including the kitchen with pink walls, charcoal counter tops and […]

Cambridge Border Etched Designs – Number 520 – Byzantine

Number 520 is another of the Cambridge border etchings that Gene Florence tagged with a nickname, in this case Byzantine.  He said it was intricate enough to deserve the name. I have never had any of this pattern so the line drawing and photos are linked from Replacements. Florence mentions Peach Blo (pink) green and […]

Cambridge Glass Etch 739 Green Console Bowl Detail

Cambridge Border Etched Designs – Number 739 – Big Urn and Scrolls

This etch is a real winner, just beautiful with a big urn in the center of scrolls.  It is another design that has no pattern name, just a number, #739. I love this etch and the footed mushroom console bowl is exquisite.  This bowl is the only piece I have had in this pattern and […]

Cambridge Border Etched Designs – Number 703 Florentine

Cambridge didn’t give this lovely border design a pattern name other than number 703.  Author Gene Florence tagged it as “Florentine”, a pretty name for a lovely, graceful pattern. We’ve had only one piece etched Florentine, this oval green center handled server. There are several scroll etches from other companies than Cambridge and I wasn’t […]

Cambridge Border Etched Designs – Number 727 Cotton Puffs

I’ve only seen one piece in Cambridge’s number 727 etch, this rolled rim console bowl.  The pattern is not in my Cambridge books but I found it on the Chatabout site.  (Click the link, then click “Gallery”.  I recommend this as an online repository which you can search by pattern motif.)  There doesn’t appear to be a […]
