vintage candlewick style ashtray.


imperial glass company was founded in 1901 in bellaire, ohio.

in the early 1930s candlewick glassware was designed by imperial's chicago sales representative-- earl newton.


newton used a french cannonball line of glassware as inspiration for what he believed would be a unique and timeless glassware line. 

his final design reminded him of candlewicking - a style of needlework popular in colonial times and thus the name was born! 

imperial’s candlewick style was formally introduced at the wheeling centennial celebration in 1936.
