Folks colored candlesticks are of extreme rarity. They do not come up often and when they do they command the attention they deserve. This candlestick was either made from a western glass house (Pittsburgh area) or Boston Sandwich. Lowell Innes notes: The square base was used by both eastern and western glass houses so its hard to attribute to either one. Condition is excellent there is a medium size chip to one of the bases and small common flee size roughness to the edges of some of the ovals otherwise proof condition. Do not sleep on this one. Ht 8 8/4. Ref Elsholz volume 1, page 44, plate 186 for a similar example just with different form. Also, reference Lowell Innes Book on Pittsburgh Glass page 237 plate 235 for similar candlesticks. ~SOLD~

32 ribs midwestern broken swirl yellow/amber Pitkin Flask. ex. Alberta Petterson Collection. Pitkins in yellow are considered rare as opposed to their cousins in dark ambers which are very common. Excellent condition; some residue in flask but just noted for accuracy as you can see from the photo it does not distract from the wonderful color of this flask. Free of all chips, cracks etc..

Attributed to Pittsburgh Glass Factory ca1825. Made of bottle glass with 8 pillars. American pillar molded amber vases are extremly rare and can only be found in museums. Few exist in private hands. This example was found in the Ohio area. It diplays a very strong pillar molded impression and a slight scalloped edged rim along with a rough pontil and ballister stem. Similar examples can be found in Corning Museum of Glass and the Metropolitan Museum in NY. It will be a long time until another example like this shows up.

The famous Dahlia lided sugar bowl.  This bowl was purchased from a long time collection in Pennsylvania. Has  great impression and is an iconic piece of American glass.  Attributed to Stiegel Glass works ca 1780. Displays the expanded diamond in both the body and the lid with a spiral finial both lid and bowl are matching. Rhea Knittle notes: these bowls are not attributed to being American based upon their color or diamonds it is more so based upon the conical foot and high domes they often have along with the spiral finial which is not typical of English pieces.   Very important piece of American glass and great examples like this one do not come up often.
