Imperial Glass is one of America’s most popular crystal patterns. Imperial’s
Candlewick stems feature an understated, flared bowl resting atop the now famous and unique stem (designated “3400” by Imperial Glass) noted for its unique design of a series of spheres stacked on top of one another, with a round base. The repeating geometric forms that comprise the stem are indicative of the Art Deco influence on applied arts during the 1930s and 1940s. Imperial released
Candlewick in 1936, and the pattern was very well received. Due to its unique design and history,
Candlewick has become highly collectible. The pattern has been the inspiration for a number of books, fan clubs, and more. According to “Candlewick: The Jewel of Imperial” by Mary M. Wetzel-Tomalka, the story of
Candlewick and the Imperial Glass Company is one that is steeped in history and the American ideals of entrepreneurship, hard work, and perseverance. Replacements carries a very large selection of place setting, serving, and accessory pieces (many featuring beaded edges) in
Candlewick, including the water goblet, wine, iced tea, sherbet champagne, cordial, canapé plate, dinner plate, service plate, creamer, sugar, torte plate, basket, and much, much more. You can own a piece (or many pieces!) of this history by adding to or starting a great collection of
Candlewick by Imperial Glass!
