I have been several books and online sites I can find out what G.T.C is other then the artist and no full name can be found I have found several pieces with the exact markings and have learned the following. These were done in the early 1950s.The candle set you have is valued at 150.-175.00 for the pair done in 1958 and looks to be in excellent condition. A small bowl done by the artist sold for 45.00 on ebay.com and right now has a few pieces marked the same however with other initials. Thank you and if I can help you further please let me know I am always happy to help.
