    Samuel Clarke is best known for his art glass commissioned fairy lamps. However, he did commission a cut glass design that he used in several configurations as illustrated in his 1887-88 catalog. He simply called this design "Richly Cut."

    The glass is cut and polished from a pressed blank and it has the weight and ring tone of lead crystal. The maker is unknown but I suspect it is British in origin. If anyone has any theories of who may have produced this line of fairy lamps, I would sure like to hear your thoughts.
