Tom Felt's introduction to glassware began in 1977 when he and his partner, Bob O'Grady, admired a pair of candlesticks at a friend's house. Little did they know that would lead to one of the most complete collections of Heisey candlesticks anywhere, and would also result in their first book, Heisey Glass Candlesticks, Candelabra, and Lamps. Tom has since written two other books on Heisey and became a regular contributor to the Glass Collector's Digest and other periodicals.
Elaine Stoer and her husband Richard, are co-authors of a three-volume series on glass candlesticks, along with Tom Felt. She and husband Richard are advanced collectors and researchers in this field.
