Mystery Dish Answer - Candle Holders

The company is Anchor Hocking Glass and the pattern is Moonstone. These candle holders were made from 1941 through 1946 which makes them 1940's glass, not depression glass. The opalescence or milkiness of this pattern comes from adding ash or tin oxide during the firing process. Moonstone was mainly sold in five-and-dime stores during the middle of World War II.
