Many people call
candleholders "candle sticks" which is technically a holder
with a pin on which a wax candle is "stuck." Candleholders have
a cup in which the candle base is placed.
Most of the stretch
glass candleholders are easily identified by their shape and form. However
there are four types that are very similar - "Colonial," short
trumpet, tall trumpet, and spindle types. For these types, close inspection
will be needed in order to make the proper identification. The following
line drawings should help. If you want to print out copies of these illustrations
