Cobalt Ball Candle Holders- New Or Vintage?

Recommended Posts


I have a pair of cobalt ball shaped candle holders that I believe are vintage. I've done some research and learned that the newer cobalt is darker, and the ball candle holders have a raised H on the base. My pair do NOT have the raised H, just the incised fiesta and HLC mark. I don't think these are as dark as the new ones, but its hard to be sure just comparing with the ones online.

Is the absence of the raised H enough to say for sure that these are vintage? I tried several times to post photos to no avail, sorry about that.

Thanks for any help!
