"Sun Purple" glass was made between 1860 and 1915. Prior to 1860 lead was used and referred to as "Flint" glass, Manganese was used for sun purple glass, and gradually turns purple in the sun over time. More and more of manganese glass has turned purple taking away from the value of the original clear glass. Both manganese glass and flint glass will glow yellow under the black light. However flint glass does not seem to be as bright as manganese glass from my observations. These do glow very vivid yellow under a black light.
These Art Deco candlesticks have manganese in them. Anyone with any further knowledge, please convo me.
One of these candlesticks seem to have some damage at the top, there is some sort of fracture, and what seems to be glue, but the glue like area glows as well. I think this may be a flaw in manufacturing. The other one is near perfect. They are in very good condition for their age.
There are no signs of turning purple. Note the "shear lines" here and there on the pieces, which are from manufacturing at that time, and not cracks.
