Paden City Two-Light Candlestick

Nov 20, 2023 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a Paden City two-light candlestick in Copen blue in the Largo pattern, circa 1937. We also have examples of this candlestick in ruby (with the Loopie etching), amber, and crystal. In fact, we have multiple examples in crystal, with various decorations including the Iris etching (tinted with green and lavender), and the Frost, and Daffodil etchings, as well as one with an unknown polished cutting – showing just how popular this blank was for added decorations.
