Antiques Roadshow: Vaseline Glass Values

Looking for some help with Vaseline Glass Values

by Esther Anderson (Indianapolis, Indiana)

Vaseline Glass Candlesticks Vaseline Glass Candy Dish

Photos above show my Vaseline Glass candlesticks and the vaseline glass candy dish

My mother who was born 1923 gave me these Vaseline Glass candlesticks and candy dish when she was alive.

They were my Grandmothers and she was born in 1903.

No-one wanted them but me, and no one is alive now that can tell me anything about either the Vaseline glass candlesticks or the candy dish.

I think I know how old they are.

But I’m hoping someone here can confirm the age and help me out with how to find out how valuable they may be.

Thanks for any help, Esther

I have one the same by: Herriman

I have one the same and it was sold to me as Vaseline glass. Mine is exactly the same but etched around the base and top.

I would love to know its age as well.

Stunning to look at – just gorgeous.

Not vaseline Glass, Use a fluorescent or LED black light by: Archibald

Those don’t really look like vaseline glass.

If they are they will glow green under a black light (U/V light).

Use a fluorescent or LED black light, not a bulb; the bulbs don’t work, I tried one.

    The candlesticks look like Fostoria. I have a price guide from 1998 that prices the candlesticks at 120 for the pair

    I forgot to add that the book I got the info from is Yellow-green Vaseline! A Guide to the Magic Glass.
    It places those around 1927
