Product Description And Additional Pictures

The Bittersweet plant is a semi-woody, poisonous, and deciduous perennial vine which is native to Europe and Asia. It is considered an invasive weed in North America. This climber has arrow shaped leaves, and beautiful flowers with star-shaped petals which bear juicy, ovoid red berries.

The Bittersweet pattern was introduced by the Roseville Pottery Company in 1951, with beautiful wares produced in gray, green and yellow. Our set of gray Bittersweet candlesticks are embellished on both sides with the leafy green vines and reddish flowers of their namesake. Their highly textured backgrounds are predominately gray, with reddish shading along the underside of the hourglass concave and the bottom of the piece. The handles are brown woody branches with realistic detailing.

This wonderful set of Mid-Century art pottery candlesticks are in excellent vintage condition, with no chips, cracks or repairs. The bottom of each piece has crazing indicative of their age, and also bears the raised mark Roseville U.S.A. 851-3". They measure approximately 3-1/4" tall, and 3-1/4" wide at the base.
