Roseville Candlesticks

Candlesticks are some of the most collected items in American art pottery and Roseville has some of the most remarkable design elements and glazes. Many Roseville Pottery collectors say their collection began with just one pair of candlesticks. Most were hooked and knew they had to continue building their collection. Take a look at a few of the most popular patterns. Eclectic or traditional, glossy or matte finishes – there’s a Roseville pattern for everyone.

And speaking of eclectic, the Roseville Futura includes a candlestick design and it’s unlike anything else most have seen. First, the mouth is square and narrows the closer to the base you get. These designs have two complementing glazes – a bluish/green and more of an eggshell glaze really set these apart. But what draws the eye are the bulb shapes that grace the bottom of the candlesticks. It’s an acquired taste for many, but for the hardcore Futura collectors, this is a must have.

Apple Blossom remains one of the more popular Roseville patterns. Candlesticks are part of this line and they boast the traditional apple tree branch in the handles. The green glaze was smart and it works well with the brown and white that are part of the Apple Blossom charm. It’s little wonder that this was one of those strongest sellers when it was unveiled all those years ago.

Ah – but it’s the Roseville Dahlrose that will catch your attention and hold it. This line has a few bud vases, complete with plenty of decorative elements. Interestingly, these elements don’t overwhelm the presentation and because the bud vases are small, they easily double as candlesticks. That’s just part of the versatility a few of the Roseville patterns bring to the table. Browns and usually a few shades of green define the glazes and the abundance of the white Dahlrose against a textured body just works beautifully.

Many – if not most – of the Roseville patterns have at least one candlestick design. For those who are just beginning their collections, starting with candlesticks or even wall pockets will allow for a great start and will surely drive your passion for adding to your collection. There’s nothing better than coming across a pair of these beauties that you never knew existed. It’s an exhilarating feeling, especially if you’re able to add them to your own collection.
