- Pattern: Carlingford
- Made in England by Stuart Crystal
- Vintage: 1979-1984
- Details: A pair of very heavy, brilliantly cut, crystal candle holders. The pattern, which is criss-cross on the bottom and has vertical designs going up, catches the light from many angles and disperses the light in a rainbow of hues. The look is elegant, cross between Art-Deco and Mid-Century modern. Could also work in today’s modern styles as the majority of the pattern is on the bottom with very little pattern the rest of the way up. They have a very unusual diamond shaped base showcasing most of the pattern. “Stuart” name clearly etched on the bottom. Perfect for 12″ taper candles.

Anyone who knows about crystal, knows the Stuart name stands out above the rest. Stuart Crystal’s story begins in 1827 when Frederick Stuart, at the age of eleven, and orphaned, was sent to work at the Redhouse Glassworks on the Crystal Mile in England. By 1853 he, along with Richard Mills, Edward Webb, and Thomas Webb, formed the firm of Mills, Webb & Stuart. In 1883 Stuart started a family business called Stuart & Sons, taking over the old Red House glass works where he had worked many years before. Later Stuart’s sons kept the Stuart Crystal company successful right up until 1995. In 1995, the crystal-making firm was successfully bought out by the equally renowned Waterford Wedgwood company. In 2001 the Stuart factory was closed forever, making the preservation of those Stuart Crystal pieces that remain a matter of great historical importance.
