This fairy lamp is from our undocumented collection. It is unusual in many respects, not least of which is the Oak with Acorn decoration. This decoration has many attributions, all without supporting documentation. I think I can discount the British attributions and focus on Bohemian glass houses. But, which one?
This lamp is cased in white with an embossed diamond design. The piecrust base plate is attached to the lamp cup. The Oak and Acorn decoration is clear frosted glass. The leaves appear to be hand formed but the acorns appear to be pressed or at least mold formed.
The following link will take you to an article written in 2007 soliciting information. It includes some background on the lamp and several examples of similar decoration on various shapes and in several colors. Since this article was written, additional shapes have been documented.
Opinions and theories are appreciated. But, supporting documentation is priceless. :-)
