Candlewick Butter Dish in Jadite
Original Candlewick was one of Imperial Glass Corporation's most popular patterns. It was introduced in 1936 and made until Imperial closed in 1984. Many of the molds have survived and are frequently used for new products. A pair of new products are two butter dishes made in opaque green glass, or Jadite. The two shapes in production are #400/161 with beaded top, shown here, and #400/276 with no beads on top, commonly called California. No original Candlewick was made in Jadite.
