Cristal J. G. Durand, Pair of Crystal Candle Holders

23 Nov

JG France Candle holders

Two lovely crystal candle holders by J. G. Durand. The tallest one is 6 1/4″ tall and the other one is 4 1/8″ tall.  The diameter is 1 3/4″.  They are finely ribbed horizontally and are made of solid glass therefore quite heavy.  The smaller one has a very minor nick on the top edge which is barely visible.

J.G. Durand falls under the Arc International Group from Northern France.

The following information was on Wikipedia:

Brands under the Arc group include its own Luminarc (launched in 1948), Arcoroc (launched in 1963 for use in restaurant industry), Cristal d’Arques (launched in Europe in 1968), Longchamps (launched in the US in 1968), Salviati (acquired in Italy in 1999), Pyrex (under license in Europe from World Kitchen since 2005) and the fine crystal brand J. G. Durand.

Mikasa Inc.(originally purchased by Arc from founder George Aratani in 2000)[4] was sold by the firm to Lifetime Brands in 2008 for an undisclosed amount.[5]

These candle holders can be found at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mills Street, Almonte, ON just 30 minutes west of Ottawa.

Open 7 days a week, from 10am to 5pm, all year round. The market houses over 50 different vendors in one convenient location.

Gorgeous jewel tone colours on these fondue plates made in France by Sarreguemines.  I would date these to the  early 70’s when fondues were all the rage.  These will be for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market  in Almonte Ontario for $25.00 for the six plates.

Note: These plates are now SOLD!!!
