|Information on Candlewick
by Imperial Glass
|Candlewick was made by Imperial Glass Company between 1936
and 1982. The president of Imperial Glass Co purchased a piece
of French glass. He took the piece to the factory and had his
employees develop a mould. This new glass had glass balls on the
edges. Imperial then decided to name the glass pattern
Candlewick after a colonial sewing technique that also had balls
along the edges. Candlewick became a household name among
American women. Candlewick became Imperial’s most extensive
line. There are over 700 items in this line.
