What a fun subject! Four experts chimed in. Here is my take on the subject. Michael Krumme is familiar with Wisteria. Trouble is for the thickness of the glass these candlesticks are too dark and too much purple for Wisteria. I agree from what we see in the photo.
David Chadwick-Brown sees the blue in them. David the blue needs to be darker, more of a cobalt color to be Canterberry. I am not excluding Canterbury as a possibility, we are dealing with a photo and these are far from closeups!
Let's not forget Pale Amethyst as a color possibility when we are seeing purple. The first two pictures below are of Pale Amethyst and are slightly darker than the very soft color of Wisteria.
However, I would agree it is is the lighting that is controlling the factors. I also see a blue cast just as David Chadwick-Brown did. The color of blue I see is more of a Celeste shade as seen in Wisteria rather than the cobalt seen in Canterbury.
Even though they are very dark in the photo I am going with Scott's assessment If any one of the four of us was able to see these in person or a good closeup photo I am sure any of us could have nailed it.
ÿ Last picture is of a Wisteria Bowl in low lighting showing a darker shade of color than normal.
