It is the onlyThe Fairy Lamp Club, established 1996, is dedicated to the research and advancement of information related to Victorian and contemporary fairy lamps. It is the only Club dedicated to this specialized collectable. Our members are throughout the United States with several members from Canada, England, and Australia. The membership includes many collectors who have dedicated years—in some cases decades—to researching and collecting Victorian and contemporary fairy lamps and other candle-burning devices. They are an invaluable source of information and share their experience freely with other Club members through their contributions to the Fairy Lamp Newsletter. If you collect or deal in Fairy Lamps, or simply want to learn more about them, I am sure you would find the newsletter interesting and informative. (Read more)

  2. My guess is a base to a miniature oil lamp. It would have had a matching shade.
  3. Inky, Did you sell your vase? Or is this a different one? http://www.ebay.com/itm/261526731261.
  4. I also find it interesting how the glass industry applied their talents to everyday uses. While not Czech glass, there are many examples of English fairy lamps being used for everyday purposes, incl...
  5. Well, apparently no one knows what this is, including me. But, I will guess it is a sugar breaker.
  6. Hmm......do I get extra credit for spelling? Sometimes my fingers are faster than my head. Well, actually, most of the time. And, besides, that's how we pronounce it in the south. :-)
  7. Interesting that you pick up on that one. The design is some kind of "transfer" design. It is not painted by hand. I have a few others using this design transfer technique and will post them for you.
  8. The crown is not too difficult to find. They show up periodically on eBay. However, the are almost always cracked. The shape traps the heat and the complex design lends it self to a crack. The b...
  9. Yes, I have. I'll post some photos for you. Yes, they are extremely rare with a price tag to match. Exactly why I don't own any. :-)

  12. And, here is a link to the patent. http://www.google.com/patents/US613572
  13. It is a patented meat tenderizer.
  14. If you are using the framed jewel as an indicator of period, the 1915 Rindskopf catalog illustrates model 20415 as a jeweled satin glass lamp, putting it in the "Bohemian" period. But, no need to...
  15. There are several ways a candle cup could be used in this "vase". The following link will show a few examples of how candle cups can be inserted. http://fairy-lamp.com/Fairylamp/Candle_cup_pegged....
  16. The jeweled candle lamps in my collection all have drilled/punched and ground openings to accept the jeweled medallions. The vase in question may not have been designed to hold water, but perhaps a c...
  17. I realize this an old posting, but I just came accross it. You lamp is Italian c. 1970s. It is part of a larger design that included a matching pedestal with floral feet.
  18. I have posted additional information related to your fairy lamp base. You will find it in my account "IMASapp"
  19. Naturally, I advised my Fairy Lamp Club members of your find. To my surprise, one of my members sent me a photo of their matching shade. If you believe there is a possibility that these two pieces c...
  20. Well, I must tell you what you have. This is a base to a fairy lamp, c.1890. The The design was registered by Samuel Clarke (UK). The threaded pattern was officially called "Twisted" Verre Moiré by...
  21. Mystery Solved The patent number on the bottle is incorrect. The actual patent number is 1066337....not 1006337. The patent was issued to Louis Stockstrom (American Stove Company) on July 1, 1...
  22. It appears to be for winding yarn/rope but it appears that some of the "paddles" are missing.
  23. Yes, Victorian-era fairy lamps are not very well known. they are difficult at best to find. I am pleased to have the opportunity to share my collection with others. Jim www.fairylampclub.com
  24. A short article was published in our Fairy Lamp Club Newsletter on Fenton fairy lamp designs. It won't help confirm the color but will add a bit of information on this pattern/design. I have put the...
  25. Alfredo, I thought you might be inetrested in seeing two fairy lamps similar to your crackle shades. They were included in the Schreiber & Neffin 1895 catalog at; http://www.fairy-lamp.com/Fai...
  26. You will find a wealth of information on my Club's website www.fairylampclub.com The section "Fairy Lamp Catalogs and Advertisements 1887-1891" has many of the advertisements and catalog pages alrea...
  27. I certainly would agree, however, I have come across several Bohemian catalogs and advertizements that help to strengthen the attributions. Perhaps this thread will help to locate more such evidence.
  28. Here is thwir website with all the information: www.1856.com
  29. Fairy Lamps by Ruf (1996) illustrates this lamp with the following caption: Figure 733 Gothic arches embossed in frosted dome with slightly flared base. Dome rests on four bars on shoulder of lamp...
  30. I don't know what the item is, but Herman H. Heiser has made gun holsters in Denver for over 100 years. Perhaps they can help since they aparently made the case for it. http://www.hhheiser.com/histo...
  31. The Ice box was made by the Ranney Refrigerator Company, Greenville, Michigan. The model was called "Ashwood". The "two shelf" version originally sold for $14.00 according to a published Ad. The ...
