A rare antique pair of Boston & Sandwich pressed and blown 8" glass candlesticks with stepped quatrefoil bases; circa 1835 - 1860. These candlesticks are shown in Volume 4 of The Glass Industry In Sandwich book. The Boston & Sandwich combinations of blown and pressed glassware from the early days show a simplicity of design which was difficult to match in the later all-pressed glass era. The three ring wafers hold the blown sockets to the pressed bases. There are small chips here and there on the steps and bottoms. One of the candlesticks has a chip on the bottom step near the edge that is about 3/8". The other has a larger chip on the bottom edge at the corner. The top blown sockets have no chips. These fine candlesticks are an excellent and scarce example of early Boston & Sandwich glassmaking. 3 pounds 14 ounces
