These salad plates belonged to my mother-in-law....now they belong to me. The pattern is Candlewick-Clear by Imperial Glass Ohio. They're so pretty and delicate and sparkly. Unfortunately their beauty stays tucked inside my glass front cabinet. Candlewick is characterized by distinctive bead work - the "beads" can be different sizes on different pieces. I love to look at them....but I worry that I might break one of those beads off. The cabinet is next to my patio doors so the sun shines into it most afternoons....I love the sparkle that creates. I think the cabinet is probably a good home for these dishes! Beside they offer a very pretty spot for the little Josef Originals figurine ~ a sweet thrift store find.
