Styles of vintage glass candle holders available in our marketplace

Vintage cut glass candle holders: Cut glass is characterised by its surface design, which is decorated with prism shapes. These shapes are refractive, meaning light changes as it passes through them, making their reflections brighter and more brilliant. Modern forms of glass cutting were refined in the late 1500s in Europe. And it became popular amongst glassmakers in England and Ireland approximately 150 years later. We’ve got glass candle holders that were made as far back as the 18th century in our collection.

But if you’re specifically looking for vintage Murano glass candle holders, you will be looking for those from the 20th century. You can filter your search results by selecting the style and period of origin of the piece you’re looking for in the sidebar. Within our collection of vintage cut glass candle holders, keep an eye out for the different patterns, including exquisite diamond shapes, stars, and scalloped fans.

Vintage pressed glass candle holders

Pressed glass is a type of moulded glass, produced using techniques developed in the 19th century as a cheaper alternative to cutting glass. Although some designers wanted to mimic the jagged feel of cut glass, pressed glass tends to have a smoother, glazed finish, in contrast to the sharp points of its older counterpart. If you’re in any doubt about which you are buying, there’s a very simple way to tell the difference between the two styles. Cut glass candle holders will always carry a pontil mark on the bottom (a scar that shows where the pontil was broken off after the work was finished). Pressed glass candle holders, which are moulded rather than blown, do not bear these marks.
