Candle holders, that's what! This nifty pair from New Martinsville to be exact. These were originally part of a console set with a huge square bowl. I like the candle holders by themselves since the combination with the bowl was a little overwhelming. The shape is New Martinsville's line number 36 which has that little extra scallop in the center of each side. I don't know whether the pretty etch is from New Martinsville or one of the many decorating firms made it. If you like Art Deco then you'll notice the design borrows the shapes and contrast from that style. During the depression New Martinsville made interesting shapes with zing - many with Art Deco good looks. New Martinsville had more square shaped patterns than any other elegant glass company. They were known for their shapes and were always right on trend. One of their best known Deco-influenced patterns was Radiance. candle holders are a softer style that blends well with other patterns. They have a lot of looks but are not so extreme or highly stylized that they stick out when you combine them with other glass or china. Thanks for visiting our Pink Saturday pink depression glass post this week, and as always a big thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for organizing this fun event. Please be sure to visit the other bloggers to see how pink we can be.
