Candlelight Catalog images The candle, once a very important lighting device for man, now a symbol of atmosphere and romance.

The CANDLELIGHT etched pattern on Cambridge glass encompasses atmosphere and romance and adds utility.

The larger portion of the etched pattern features a single candle, complete with halo, which falls from a graceful arrangement of flowers and scroll-like leaves. This alternates with a two-branch candlelabra complete with candles.

CANDLELIGHT etching was used on most Cambridge pieces, on clear and colored and the opaques. CANDLELIGHT was also often gold encrusted.

The pieces shown are from the 1940 and 1949 Cambridge Catalogs.
