Weller Pottery, Cornish, Blue Candlesticks,Very Nice~~~
For Sale I have a very nice set of candlesticks made by The Weller Pottery Company of Zanesville, Ohio. The Pattern is called "Cornish" and it is extremely popular amongst Weller Pottery Collectors. The Candlesticks each measure approximately 3 5/16" tall and the bottom foot is 4 1/8" in diameter. The Candlesticks displays a very Pleasing Matte Mottle Blue Background Glaze. It has embossed leaves with a stem with berries hanging from the concentric ring that surrounds the lower neck of the Candlesticks on the front side. The leaves have an outstanding Green Brown life like Glaze. The berries are a deep blue and cranberry. The back side is plain and displays this wonderful Blue Mottled Glaze. This pattern has eluded me for many years as collectors don't let go of this pattern too often. The Candlesticks are considered to be in excellent condition as there are no cracks, nicks, chips or dings. There is some Glaze imperfections and misses along the bottom edge where the Glaze appears thin. These are Factory as it was made this way. There is some crazing in the neck of each stick. There are also some red candle wax specs in various areas on each stick. I have removed most of them. The pictures show some of the Red Specs on the top side of 1 of the sticks. These do come off and are of no concern. Each candlestick is signed on the bottom with the incised Script "Weller Pottery" cipher mark along with the letter "D" in black ink on one and the letter "H" on the other. This was more than likely the Artist's or finisher's mark. Those of you who collect this Weller pattern will enjoy this form into your collection. The Cornish Pattern is a hard to find Pattern by Weller. It used to be plentiful but the collectors hand on to these nowadays. The Candlesticks are probably the hardest to find in the Pattern by Weller. I'm sure the lucky buyer will be very pleased with their purchase. These Candlesticks were made Circa 1933.
