Machine Age Art Deco Dole Valve "U" Shaped Streamline Candlestick Holders

$1,250per set


Machine Age Art Deco dole valve "U" shaped streamline candlestick holders candle stick. Design Patent (1931) issued in 1933 to Willard.L. Morrison and manufactured by the Dole Valve Company of Chicago. These candle holders were engineered to hold a U-shaped candle. Candelabra candelabrum Morrison also patented an accompanying U-shaped candle for Will and Baumer in "Waxel." Dolve Valve also produced the Iconic Raymond Loewy Coca Cola fountain dispenser, among other items. In his patent for this candleholder, he states the design allows for the entire candle to be utilized and burned. The alternating stepped design in chromed metal and Bakelite is frequently misattributed to Donald Deskey. Featured in several Museum Collections, see page 290 "A Modern World" for an example in the Yale University collection. Typical vintage chrome wear and residue from use, signed, as pictured.
