I recently found what looks like an unique Imperial Candlewick

Customer Question

I recently found what looks like an unique Imperial Candlewick crystal item, not listed in any index I have seen. It is apparently modified from the single candleholder #400-280. The candle socket has been modified into a thin-walled, globular reservoir about 1-1/2 inches in diameter, topped by a flared, funnel-shaped lip about 2-3/8 inches across. The flat, unornamented foot is 3-5/8 inches wide, total height of the piece 3-1/2 inches. I assume this was intended to be a bud vase. The overall impression of the piece is more graceful and pleasing than the original candleholder design, which was rather ugly.
