A beautiful hummingbird and orchid design flows around this pair of cameo glass candlestick holders by the Phoenix Glass co. Is located in Monaca, Pa. Phoenix began production of art glass in 1932 when 45 to 50 molds from the Consolidated Glass Co. Were moved to Phoenix and used until early 1936. This occurred because Consolidated Glass Co.Had been forced to shut down because of the Great Depression. This particular pair has a beautiful green color with nice translucency. The glass pattern design is attributed to Phoenix/Consolidated.
Each piece has a large oval base, guaranteed not to tip. The center has a very large 5-inch x 3 1/2 inch medallion with the hummingbird imagery. When viewed from one side it has more of a frosted look. From the other side the image is seen through the glass window giving it an interesting sheen.
The openings up top measure 7/8 inch in diameter and the candle holder height is 6 3/4 inches. The pair is in beautiful condition. There is some minor surface wear and candle wax remnants. One candlestick has chips to the bottom rim that cannot be seen from top; may be other surface wear. Please see photos for condition and below for more measurements.
