What is more welcoming than a glowing candle? Now put that candle in an etched crystal candle holder from quality maker like Cambridge Glass – Wow.
Imagine how these little glass flares would sparkle on your table this Thanksgiving (or if your table is too full of turkey then on the buffet). This is the Martha shape from Cambridge with Chantilly etch. It’s gorgeous and perfect to make the holidays special.
You can put candle holders on the dining room table to make dinner even more memorable or place the mantle surrounded by autumn garlands or greenery (use fire retardant garlands with lighted candles).
One of the great things about elegant glass candle holders is the beautiful variety of shapes. The older companies made designs that catch the light and hold from one to several candles. This one is also Cambridge with the Diane etch. It is unusual with the pierced stem, part of the Corinth blank.
I am particularly fond of the Fostoria Baroque line of candle holders which come in several versions with one to three candles. All have an upswept motif.
This candle holder is Fostoria Baroque with Chintz etch and one of my favorite shapes.
This one is also the Baroque shape with the Meadow Rose etch.
Fostoria made more contemporary shapes too, like this curlicue holder from the Century pattern.
Yes, you can get colored candle holders too. This first one is Fostoria Versailles in green. Christmas is coming and this green is perfect. A pair of these would make a great gift for someone special.
This next one is a great depression glass pattern, Royal Lace. It is so elegant with the rolled rim!
Another pink is our Heisey Twist Flamingo holder.
This Old English holder from Indiana is a gorgeous rich shade of amber. It would look great in an autumn centerpiece.
We’re looking forward to using these Fostoria amber candlesticks pictured in back this fall. We bought them at the national glass show this summer. I love the color!
Try vintage candle holders to warm your home this winter.
