2 Vintage Imperial Glass Jade Green Dragon Candle Holders

are 2 identical vintage jade green dragon candle holders made by the Imperial Glass Company. They are both marked with the Imperial Glass Company trademark. T is a fascinating dragon figure on all 4 sides of both candle holders. T are 2 different dragon figures on each candle. They are 2 1/4" tall and 3" wide. These stunning candle holders are both in very good condition with no chips or cracks.

Please see the pictures to help determine condition. The white on the candle holders in the pictures is from the flash on the camera.

I am now adding the following information that I have just learned from another ebayer who was kind enough to send me this.

Hi I just want to tell you a little more Info on these...they are named CATHAY SHEN candlebase original prod. dates 1949-1953. These particular ones are marked LIG on the bottom so that means they were made after LENOX bought IMPERIAL GLASS in 1973 they re-issued these in IMPERIAL JADE in 1981 which is what I believe these to be.They also were originally sold as a console set with a matching rectangular bowl. According to the Glass Candlestick Book Vol. Two it states the color Imperial Jade was used from 1981 to 1983 (which this was a re-issued color from the year 1960 called DYNASTY JADE)

Just thought you might like to know some more about them.

Thanks for looking. Please see my other auctions for other collectibles.

I always combine shipping on multiple purchases whenever possible to save you money.

I usually ship by USPS, Priority Mail for Domestic and Airmail Parcel Post for International, but let me know if a different shipping option is preferred. Domestic Priority mail is quick and will provide you with a free confirmation number that you can use in to track your package. I always send you a message through Ebay that includes this confirmation number the day the package is mailed. Global Airmail Parcel Post is much quicker than ground and usually provides you with some free indemnity insurance coverage. The amount of this coverage varies depending on country. It also provides you with a free confirmation number that you can use in to track your package. I always send you a message through Ebay that includes this confirmation number the day the package is mailed. Insurance is optional, but strongly recommended. Remember that insurance not only covers damages in the shipping process, but also covers against loss.

International bidders:

Buyers are responsible for any and all Customs Fees and/or Duty Fees, or Taxes assessed by their Country. It is recommended that bidders research these fees prior to bidding. Information can be found on shippers web sites ( and ). Note, UPS also charges brokerage fees that the buyer must pay when they receive their package. These brokerage fees can be high. Because of this, I prefer to mail international shipments through the USPS. However, if you would like this shipped by UPS, please check with UPS about all additional fees prior to bidding.

I accept Paypal, money orders and cashier checks only. If paying by credit card through Paypal, I can only ship to a confirmed address. I usually ship within 24 hours of receiving payment. (Except Sundays and holidays because the post office is closed.) On money orders, cashier's checks and Paypal echecks, payment received is considered when they clear. Paypal echecks usually clear in 4-5 days. Money orders and cashier's checks usually clear in 2-3 days but could take as long as 2 weeks.

To the best of my knowledge, I ensure that listings are accurate and reflec...
