Candlewick Molds Used for Vaseline Bowl Set
Original Candlewick molds are being used to make a new three piece set of nesting vaseline glass bowls. The new bowls are 5″, 6″ and 7″ square. Original Imperial Candlewick shape numbers are respectively 400-231, 400-232, and 400-233. Wholesale price for the three piece set is $34.
Authentic Candlewick was produced by the Imperial Glass company from 1936 to 1984. Since the company closed, the original molds have been sold off and many put back in production. Vaseline was never an original color. These bowls do fluoresce under long wave ultraviolet light.
