Indiana Glass Company No. 373 Two-Light Candlestick

Jul 31, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a striking Indiana Glass Company No. 373 two-light candlestick. What makes this piece remarkable is the art deco design enhanced by the use of satin highlights. This pattern was probably introduced about 1938 and appears in a catalog we believe to be from the early 1940s. It was not made for an extensive period of time and is not often seen today. It is 5 ¼” inches high and 5” wide.

The pattern is a small one. It also includes a one-light candlestick, a footed bon bon with a cover, and a basket. The mould for the basket was also used to create six different bowls and three salvers, great examples of how many different forms could be made by modifying the shape after it was removed from the mould.
